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.
Whirl - The Aurora Collection
Scheepjes presents: Whirl - 'The Aurora Collection'. 4 Stunning shades of Scheepjes Whirl, based on the beautiful & mesmerising natural phenomena of The Northern Lights.
Each cake in the Aurora collection starts with the deep grey of a winter sky which gently turns into an Aurora colour. These yarn cakes work independently as all our Whirl cakes do, but are fabulous to use in combination with each other as the colours have been carefully chosen to work together to produce a magical colour palette for larger projects.
To celebrate Autumn arriving, Scheepjes are launching 15 new shades of their amazingly popular Whirl yarn. Introducing: the Special Edition Series: Whirl Ombré.
Each colour-way is a single colour gradually and softly changing from its deepest to its lightest shade.
Scheepjes Whirl matches perfectly with Scheepjes Whirlette
Beautiful product, best price and great service. Thank you!
Lovely yarn to work with. I am using it for a shawl. It does have knots or frays in the yarn every now and then, even within the same color ombre but I just tame a bit with damp fingers and it isn't very noticable in the project. The shipment was fast. Will be buying this type of yarn from them again.
I love Whirls! Soft, easy to work with, great drape, surprisingly warm for a cotton yarn, and the best colourways and ombres. The photos are true to colour and shipping is always fast.
Lovely yarn. Great colours and wonderful service as usual.
