Scheepjes Whirl - 753 Slice 'O' Cherry Pie
This delicious gradient yarn from Scheepjes comes in 39 scrumptious colour ways. 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.

In this blanket BelleMae Yarns also added a border using the Whirlette #860 Ice, although this is not a colour in this whirl it creates a striking border and emphasis the pinks.
