***Scheepjes have begun to phase in a new anti pilling version of the colour crafter. This will happen over time as the stocks they have run down. The new anti pilling blends well when used with the older non pilling yarns.
Fiber Content 100% Premium Acrylic Needle size 4 mm Yarn weight DK Ball weight 100 gram Length 300 meter Gauge:20 stitches, 24 rows to 10 cm on 4 mm needles
Colour Crafter is super soft! It washes and wears well and is hypo-allergenic. The names of the shades evoke images of the Netherlands (the home of Scheepjes) and the colours range from neutrals through pastels to brights. Perfect for knitting or crochet projects such as garments, toys or home-wares and because of the meters in each ball and the price point it is particularly well suited to blankets and throws.
Whilst every attempt is made to send the same dye lot there are times when that is not possible. If you would like the same dye lot please leave me a comment on your order. If I am unable to fulfil that request I will contact you before posting your order.

Scheepjes 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 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.
