Shade Card - Scheepjes River Washed and River Washed XL
This unique Scheepjes quality is comparable to Stone Washed, though River Washed is made from a painted inner thread that is surrounded by a differently coloured net, resulting in a uniquely expressive yarn. This yarn is so remarkably soft and not scratchy. River Washed gives all projects a tough and contemporary look and can be combined perfectly with Stone Washed. River Washed would be a great choice of yarn for projects such as; larger blankets, wearable items and amigurumi.
River Washed is available in 22 colours. The yarns carry the names of rivers from around the world. The 8 newest colours have a gorgeous mustard-yellow colour base and are the perfect complement to the existing colour palette of River Washed and Stone Washed.
