Sheepjes whirl comes in a host of 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.
Recommended hook/needle size 3,5 / 4,0 mm 40 degree gentle wash, dry flat
The whirlettes are designed to work perfectly with the Whirls.

The very first Exclusive Colourway dyed for Lusciously Loopy is Autumn in The Lakes. This has been made by the super talented Petra at Made By Black Elephant Check out her wonderful etsy Shop and follow her on Instagram or Facebook. I have some of her yarns available here too.
When I decided to commission an exclusive hand dyed colourway I wanted the first to be something nature based. Living in the Lake District was inspiration for the four seasons in the Lake district and Petra was the first person that came to mind to dye it for me.
I am in love with what she has designed. It captures perfectly the colours and feel of Autumn in the lakes. It is so hard to capture all the gorgeous shades Petra has incorporated so I made the video to help you see just how bloomin' lovely it is :)
It is available in:
Sock - 100gm 425m 75/25 merino/nylon
DK - 115gm 230m 100% Merino
Aran - 100gm 166m 100% Merino
I have a small amount of stock available to dispatch now.
THE PRE ORDER OPTION IS NOW CLOSED. There has been a great deal of interest in this colourway so if it sells out I want to to ensure everyone that would like to purchase can have a chance to reserve one I have also added listings for a pre-order option. Petra is a very busy lady. Luckily I have booked a dye slot with her and the next batch is being dyed in Mid December. It should be due in with me the week before Christmas. Please be aware that this is not a definite date as the lovely Petra works alone and that date cannot be 100% guaranteed.This option is at a reduced price and as a further thank you for purchasing this option you will be given the opportunity to purchase the next colour in the series "Winter in The Lakes" before it goes on sale. That colour way should be due with me at the same time. I will keep you informed if there is any delay in getting the pre ordered yarn in. ****Please be aware that any other products ordered with this item will be sent together when the Autumn in the lakes order comes in****
Black Elephant yarns are all hand-dyed in Sheffield using wool which is ethically sourced, supporting communities which produce it and no animals are hurt (mulesing free)
Each skein will come in an organza bag. Each order will receive one handmade glass stitch marker by Libbycraft and a Pukka "love" T'bag.
Please note that the photos are for illustration purposes only and show particular colourway as accurately as is possible with hand dyed yarn. The skein you receive might differ to this photo slightly. Colours do not pool or stripe and create a nice speckled / heathered effect. There are no dye lots and each skein is unique.
Machine washable in cold water but as with all wools it will last longer if washed in hands. Flat dry.

Fiona designed a gorgeous mandala, slightly adapted from the mandala from the mini Xmas Advent crochet along we did last year and has added a coaster pattern too.I find mandalas the perfect mindful project. I love to make them. They allow for mindful moments and you can create it over a day, a weekend or if your life is busy and stressful you can make a row a day and take a short, mindful time out to relax..We chose this calm colour palette of Catona cotton and option one (see below) is to purchase this combination. The shades are 506 Caramel, 130 Old Lace, 414 Peach and 249 Saffron.In the sturdy Kraft box you get the four 25gm balls of yarn, a 15gm ball of Scheepjes Cahlista cotton (colour will be chosen at random) for you to try, a pukka love tea bag, a handmade glass bead stitch marker by Libby at Libbycraft and a wooden button with " I had you in my heart when I made this" on. There is a cotton canvas project bag included. I have a free pattern for a small flower (as seen in the image) that you could use to decorate the bag and have included as tibetan silver Lotus flower charm motif that you could use to dangle from the drawstring as added decoration. Everything will come wrapped in tissue paper and sealed in the box. You can use the box to gift the mandala and Coasters. I will email the pdf pattern to you once I dispatch your order.Option One is the kit with the shades we chose.Option two is for the kit and your choice of Catona cotton shades.Add the kit to your basket and then add the shades of catona cotton you wish to use. The total price will add up to £15.50**The Kit and PDF pattern are not available to purchase alone***.The kit price includes 4 balls of catona and only four balls fit in the box but you could add more catona to your basket if you wanted to use more shades in the design. You can see some examples below of how the mandala looks in different shades.....
