• Have you been playing 'yarn chicken’ with your Scheepjes Whirl Cakes?
• Do you want to make a garment and have the same colour of sleeves?
• Did you want to extend a pattern using Whirl cakes but keep the gradient effect?
• Would you like to join motifs made in Whirl gradient yarn but with a single solid colour?
Introducing Scheepjes Whirlette! The answer to all these questions and a complete game changer for yarn cake lovers! Whirlette is a 100g ball (445m!) of exactly the same yarn as Whirl, but in a single colour, that co-ordinates beautifully with many of our Whirl yarn cakes.
Blueberry - coordinates beautifully with Green Tea Tipple & Mid Morning Mocharoo amongst others.
Grappa - coordinates with Black Forest Zinger & Laverderlicious amongst others.
Frosted - coordinates with Blueberry Bambam & Slice ‘O’ Cherry Pie amongst others.
Mango - coordinates with Rhubarb Bumble & Passion Fruit Melt amongst others
Liquorice - coordinates with Liquorice Yumyum & the entire Aurora collection amongst others.
Due to the limitations of Shopify I can only list 100 variations per product so with 109 Catona has to be split into two products. Hopefully this is not too confusing for you!

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.
