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.
For those with a sweet tooth, Scheepjes presents Frosted Whirl! Scheepjes Whirl, the unique yarn cake with the plied thread section, is now available as a cotton, acrylic and lurex blend yarn. This glittery yarn is available in three super sweet flavours: Sunny Sundae Sauce, Skinny Scream and Yummy Tummy. Knit with the same needle sizes as the other Whirl range yarns: 3.50-4.00mm. Each yarn cake weighs 215g and holds a whopping 1000 metres of yarn!
Scheepjes Woolly Whirl is the warmer alternative to Scheepjes Whirl and is perfect for the cold seasons. This extra-large yarn cake made from a 70% cotton and 30% wool blend features extra-long colour changes that create a beautiful, gradual colour gradient throughout your knitted and crocheted items. It is particularly suitable for making cosy shawls and scarves. As each colour changes, the yarn fibre has been carefully tied to allow you to hide the knots discreetly in your stitches. Scheepjes Woolly Whirl is a Fingering weight yarn. Each yarn cake weighs 215 grams and has a length of 1000 metres.
Scheepjes Whirl matches perfectly with Scheepjes Whirlette
The colour change is fantastic, and the order came super quick! So happy!
I just bought my first whirls from Taemombo and I am so impressed. They are beautiful and work up amazing. The threads don’t unravel (unlike other whirls) and the colours are beautiful with long, even changes. I highly recommend - I’m just finishing a crochet shawl with Rhubarb Bumble and it’s so pretty I’m scared to wear it!
Trying Whirl for the first time and ordered a few different colour combinations for gift projects. Love a colour-changing yarn. Although I normally only use wool, so far this fingering yarn has worked well for the lace shawl I’m knitting in Blueberry Bam Bam - it’s subtle colour variation will look great with jeans. As many have mentioned, delivery is very quick. My order arrived in just days. Thank you!
I really enjoy crocheting with this yarn, it’s easy on the hands, and slides nicely on my hook.
