SCHEEPJES TALES

The Knitter - - The Knitter Loves -

Look­ing for colour in­spi­ra­tion for your new year knit­ting? Yarn brand Scheepjes has launched two prod­ucts aim­ing to kick­s­tart our cre­ativ­ity. These are Colour Tribe, a new range of light 4ply yarn whose colours have been de­vel­oped in part­ner­ship with Scheepjes’ ac­tive com­mu­nity of blog­gers. The choice of self-strip­ing colour­ways in­cludes soft pas­tels and vi­brant tones, and each is named af­ter the blog­ger who cre­ated it. The blend of 70% su­per­wash merino and 30% polyamide will be ideal for light­weight gar­ments, shawls and socks. It costs £7.99 per 50g ball.

An­other new ar­rival is a wool­lier ver­sion of Scheepjes’ pop­u­lar Whirl gra­di­ent cot­ton 4ply yarn. Woolly Whirl blends 30% wool with 70% cot­ton for a warmer feel, and of­fers ex­tra-long colour changes. £24.50 per 220g. Avail­able from www.wool­ware­house.co.uk 01926 882 818
