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 Whirl matches perfectly with Scheepjes Whirlette
This is my absolute favourite yarn. I have made so many blankets with it and will continue to make many blankets with it.
Love the whirl coloir transitions. This yarn is easy to work with for the most part and makes a nice soft fabric. The knots where coloir changes happen are secure, but I do find some of them to be a bit fluffy or fuzzy and the bits sometimes show. I have cut a couple of them out instead of leaving them in the work. Aside from that it's been a lovely experience. The customer service I received from Taemombo was also excellent!
Lovely yarn with great stitch definition. There are some unfortunate snags and it has a tendency to tangle easily. The pieces it makes though are soft with a beautiful drape and good texture
Was surprised at how thin the whirl yarn is. Have been working with it for a few weeks and I am very pleased with the results.
A pleasant shop to do business with; reliable, communicative and friendly.
