As a company and as a brand, Scheepjes is continuously looking for ways to innovate and create products that are both enjoyable for you and good for the planet. This led us to the creation of our newest sustainably produced and vegan friendly yarn,Scheepjes Organicon.
Made from 100% organic cotton, this yarn is part of a global movement towards reducing resource consumption and conscious production methods. Alongside the benefits of organic farming on water quality, land fertility and energy use, organic cotton is an exceptionally soft fibre that is delicate for you and your little one's skin! This makes Scheepjes Organicon a particularly suitable yarn for creating garments, stuffed toys and accessories for babies and toddlers, as well as garments for adults with a sensitive touch.
Scheepjes Organicon is available in 21 soft and fresh pastel shades with a selection of neutrals that together make gorgeous colour combinations for a wide range of projects.
Eco Conscious and Sustainable
With Scheepjes Organicon, we are taking steps towards creating a better world by promoting an eco conscious, sustainable and vegan friendly product. Through embodying the ethos of Scheepjes Organicon, we as a crafting community can work towards change together.
Scheepjes Organicon holds the GOTS certification which guarantees through traceability that the cotton has been grown on organic certified fields without the use of chemical fertilisers, farmed in a sustainable manner and in a way that ensures the continuing fertility of the land it is grown on. The dyes used are also GOTS-certified and have the highest sustainability index possible for textile manufacture.
By harnessing a 100% biological wastewater treatment approach in the production process of Scheepjes Organicon, wastewater from the production of this yarn is safely recycled and repurposed.
A vegan friendly yarn is one that contains no animal products or by-products. From the dyes used to colour this yarn, to its 100% plant-based fibre, Scheepjes Organicon respects the welfare of animals and offers a high-quality alternative for all conscious crafters.

Jane Burns loves creating accessible designs and working with beautiful yarns in her projects. Her belief is that crafting should be a relaxing past-time, and strives to create projects that are both quirky, yet suitable for a range of crocheters and knitters from beginner to advanced. She has had patterns published in The Knitter, Let’s Knit, and Knit Now magazines, to name a few, as well as in previous issues of Scheepjes YARN The After Party - which you may remember - the Dino Hunter Sweater and the Sunshine Dress.
This timeless design, featuring an eye-catching geometric motif reminiscent of bees busily buzzing, will most certainly catch a glance or two atop your couch, arm-chair or outdoor setting. Designer Esme Crick used mosaic crochet techniques to achieve this bold result. Doesn’t the contrast of bright and beige simply give the Busy Bees Cushion a multidimensional pop?
This pattern has been crocheted using our 50g balls of Scheepjes Catona in colours 248 Champagne and 189 Royal Orange. You’ll need 5 balls for the background, and 2 for the contrasting motif, with the end result being a lovely 45 x 45cm new addition to your home!
