Scheepjes Ombre Whirl - 558 Shrinking Violet
Scheepjes Ombre - Special Edition
To celebrate Northern Hemisphere Autumn arriving, Scheepjes are launching 15 new shades of their amazingly popular Whirl yarn. Introducing: the Special Edition Series: Whirl Ombré.
Each colour-way is a single colour gradually and softly changing from its deepest to its lightest shade.
Three very good friends of Scheepjes have joined in the celebrations by designing 3 completely FREE patterns in Autumn inspired colours for you to make. From the deep rusted oranges and burnt yellows of Autumn foliage to the cherry pink of berries.
This delicious gradient yarn from Scheepjes is a welcome addition to the already popular 39 scrumptious colour ways of Scheepjes Whirl.
Made from a blend of 60% cotton / 40% acrylic to produce projects that are lightweight and breathable. Unlike other gradient yarns, Whirl has a generous twist to enable speed while working the yarn and to help prevent splitting. The beautiful drape of this yarn makes it perfect for shawls, accessories, garments and stylish home décor projects. Whirl has a unique twisted plied section, which gives it a characteristic ‘flavour’ all of its own!
This extra large yarn cake holds an enormous 1000 meters of softly colour changing yarn, more than enough for a large shawl or wrap. Each colour change is carefully tied in an optimum way to ensure the knot can be discretely hidden within your stitches.
