Made from a blend of 60% cotton / 40% acrylic to produce projects that are lightweight and breathable.
The beautiful drape and extra large size of this yarn cake (holds an enormous 1000 meters of softly colour changing yarn), is more than enough for a large shawl or wrap.
Unlike other gradient yarns, Scheepjes Whirl has a unique twisted plied section, which gives it a characteristic ‘flavour’ all of its own - the generous twist enables speed while working the yarn and helps prevent splitting.
Each colour change is carefully tied in an optimum way to ensure the knot can be discretely hidden within your stitches.
