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

All our yarn is hand dyed, so there may be some variation between skeins. We endeavour to photograph our yarn to best represent their colours, but colours may be displayed differently from monitor to monitor and please allow for some lighting variation when receiving your yarn.
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. As seen in the image below.
