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.

PRE ORDER OPTIONS (for stock due in December) are now closed.
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****
