Scheepjes Downtown takes you on an exploration of the vibrant city centre: from the Financial District and Museum Square to City Shopper and Park Hill – with Downtown the city is your playground!
Downtown is a durable yarn made from 75% Extra Fine Merino Wool and 25% Nylon in a selection of lively colourways. This yarn benefits from the warmth and breathability qualities of wool, but also offers the durability and easy care of nylon. The composition blend makes Downtown extremely versatile. The yarn is characterised by softness and beautiful drape, making it the ideal choice for crocheting or knitting clothing items and fashion accessories. Because of its strength and durability, Downtown is also particularly suitable for stuffed animals, home décor accessories or socks with interesting striped patterns.
The colours, composition blend and yarn weight of Scheepjes Downtown compliment seamlessly the existing Scheepjes Metropolis collection of yarns in stunning solid shades. The possibilities are endless, ranging from jumpers or vests with contrasting sleeves and collar to striped socks with a unicolour heel and toe.
