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 ‘flavor’ all of its own! The 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 discreetly hidden within your stitches.
Scheepjes Whirl matches perfectly with Scheepjes Whirlette. The unicolour shades of Scheepjes Whirlette coordinate perfectly to match either the inner or outer colours of the Whirl yarn cakes, which is ideal for extending a gradient project or, for example, adding edging to the sleeves or neckline of a cardigan. Combinations of Whirl and Whirlette can be found here.
