This delicious gradient yarn from Scheepjes comes in 54 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 discreetly hidden within your stitches.

Scheepjes Whirl

Lovely yarn to work with, gorgeous colours and totally addictive! Great seller, fast delivery and lovely wee gifts arrived with yarn.

Lovely yarn to work with. Lovely results. They stock every colour at this shop.

I'm crocheting my favourite shawl and to be honest, I'd like to make one in every colour! Yarnalicious had the one I had searched for.... Whirl and whirlette is nice yarn to work with as it's delicate and doesn't unravel. Washes and wears well. Buy some! (Patten is available to buy on Grinda shawl by Started shawl in "Mid morning moocharoo". Finished one is in "Blackcurrent squeeze me" You'll need a whirl and a toning whirlette to make one like this.

Excellent service

I have received three balls of Scheepjes Whirl and the service was 100% from start to finish. The Scheepjes cakes are a little annoying in that they have numerous knots. These are supposed to be able to be worked in as you go. I have found that you need, very carefully, to remove the surplus yarn around these knots. The colour change is very gradual and works well

I enjoy this yarn so much, waiting for the gradual shift in colour as I knit and feeling how soft it is.

So very soft!

I’ve been wanting to purchase a Sheepjes Whirl for such a long time and I’m so glad that I did! The colour of the yarn on the webpage is true to the actual colour of the yarn. I haven’t crocheted it up yet, but from the feel of it, it will have been worth every penny!
