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. River Washed gives all projects a tough and contemporary look and can be combined perfectly with Stone Washed.

River Washed is available in 22 colours. The yarns carry the names of rivers. The 8 newest colours (955-962) with a gorgeous mustard-yellow colour-base are the perfect complement to the existing colour palette of River Washed and Stone Washed.

Note just a precaution if you are using the darkest colors next to a very light be sure to add a color catcher on your first washes just to prevent any possible running.

LOVE this yarn! So nice to work with and looks amazing. I love how they wrap the different colour around the core so that it’s a beautiful blend of two colours. Great for gradient shawls.

Stunning colours but...

I love how vivid and multi-dimensional the colours are. (I have Narmada and Steenbras). I haven't had any problems with splitting and I love the texture of my crochet project. But to keep it real, I did experience several knots and uneven yarn width. The yarn will suddenly narrow for 2-3cm and then resume its normal width, this is especially true for the Steenbras. I cut the yarn and magic knot it before I resumed my crocheting. I will tolerate these issues (but knock a star for the issues I had) for now as I'm incredibly enchanted by the unique colours and will probably continue to order/use them for other projects.


This is my second time using River Washed/Stone Washed in a project, and it is fast becoming one of my favourite yarns to work with. Superior stitch definition, and such a great range of colours! I love that I am able to support a small business in Canada!

I can't wait to make something with this yarn!

I haven't started using my Scheepjes River Washed yarn yet, but I do love the depth of colour it has. I was especially excited to be able to get my order from a small business in my old home province of Saskatchewan. Impressive!
