The iconic Scheepjes Whirl has arrived all the way from the Netherlands and is now available at The Wool Shop.
With over 1000m of gorgeously coloured cotton acrylic blend in a thick 4/ply/thin dk, these beauties are a breed (of little sheep) on their own. (Scheepjes = little sheep in Dutch).
Ideal for shawls (but also beautiful for any other project where you require a soft blend of vibrant shades) they come in approximately 225 g cones/cakes. The yarn is machine washable at 40C and a blend of 60% cotton to 40% acrylic. They advise us to use needles/hooks between 3.5mm and 4mm in size, but as you know, if you want it ‘holier’ go up in size, or if on the contrary, you want a denser fabric, go down in size.
