Quirky and unconventional; Downtown embodies the heart and soul of a cityscape, giving order to the chaos of a bustling midtown. This everyday, urban environment can uplift our spirits, give us energy and add a welcome splash of colour. From the subtly sweet Baker’s Corner, to the green Lakeside and the eccentric Gallery Central; the distinctive colourways reflect the colours and characteristics of locations found in cities all over the world.
Scheepjes presents Downtown, a self-striping, Premium Blend yarn made from Extra Fine Merino Wool and Nylon fibres. This blend of fibres creates a light and warm yarn that is also durable and easy to maintain. Downtown is further characterised by a soft touch, beautiful drape and excellent stitch definition, making it the ideal choice of yarn for making quirky, striped accessories, such as hats, socks and cowls. Downtown is available in 18 colourways.
Downtown and Metropolis go hand in hand. They share the same weight and fibre composition and Downtown’s colourways have been developed to compliment the existing Metropolis shades. Plus, both are more than just a sock yarn! This makes them a strong duo that bring out the best in each other. Just imagine all the possibilities, such as a knitted jumper with contrasting sleeves or striped socks with a uni-colour heel and toe!
This is such a soft yarn. I have to finish a WIP, but I can't wait to work with it!!
