Treat yourself to Scheepjes’ newest, more sustainable yarn collections, Scrumptious and Truly Scrumptious! Inspired by desserts from around the world, each shade is named after a mouth-watering flavour. Why not indulge in Key Lime Pie and Honeycomb Crunch, or feast your eyes on Blueberry Parfait! Using this deliciously soft yarn may feel like a guilty pleasure, but thanks to its recycled plastic bottle content, you’ll be able to knit, crochet and craft away with a clearer conscience.
Scheepjes Scrumptious and Truly Scrumptious are sister yarns created as part of Scheepjes’ transition towards including more sustainable fibres within our collections. They offer an eco-conscious alternative to our popular Scheepjes Colour Crafter and Chunky Monkey yarns. The new yarns share the same fibre content and colours, offered in two different weights: Scrumptious is DK Weight and Truly Scrumptious is Aran Weight. The 80 shades, in a mix of softly heathered and solid colours, offer lots of options to be creative. Easy-care and hypoallergenic, these yarns will soon become your new go-tos for a wide variety of projects, whether it’s a stuffed toy for a little one, a cosy throw for the couch, or a handmade garment. Whether you’re knitting, crocheting or punch needling, Scheepjes offers plenty of options to get started with these truly affordable, eco-conscious collections.
To ease the transition to a more sustainable yarn option, we’ve ensured that Scrumptious and Truly Scrumptious are compatible with Scheepjes Colour Crafter and Chunky Monkey and can be mixed and matched within the same project. All patterns previously designed for Colour Crafter and Chunky Monkey can also be made with their new counterpart of Scrumptious or Truly Scrumptious. Proving just how easy it is to create the existing patterns in our new yarns, we will showcase two of our popular YARN - The After Party patterns, newly knitted with Truly Scrumptious. We’ll feature the cosy longline Go-To Cardigan by Neringa Rūkė (YARN – The After Party 103), as well as The Borderlines Jumper designed by Simy’s Studio (YARN – The After Party 128), along with the option to add a mouth-watering fruity twist! More enticing patterns are on the way, and this Autumn sees the release of the Beyond Delicicous Polo Shirt - a Scrumptious knitted shirt with contrast collar and sleeves designed by Simy’s Studio.
The yarn is very soft and very nice to use with one exception. It does split quite easily. I am making a blanket that requires colourwork so using 4 different colours at same time. The splitting is a bit annoying when going from one colour stitch to another. However the yarn is overall very nice and soft and nice to use. The splitting won't deter me from using again. Sharon
