Yarn Day: Secret Garden

This week Scheepjes launched another brand new yarn.  Seriously, I can’t keep up with them all, there are so many!  This one is the silk blend Secret Garden.

Among the Blogger Tribe, this one has been much anticipated.  We were lucky enough to be given a sneak peek and there was lots of oohing and aahing and rubbing yarn on our faces.

So I’m excited to give you a little show and tell!

I have these three colours – Rambling Blooms, Herb Garden and Falling Blossom for a top secret project that I’m working on, but I also wanted to show you how it crochets.  I whipped up this granny:

It shows off the colours in Rambling Blooms beautifully, don’t you think?

About the yarn; it’s a silk (20%), cotton (20%) and polyester (60%) blend, and the recommended hook/needles sizes is 4mm.  I’ve gone up to a 5mm though, as I think that suits my style much better.  The fabric of my granny is quite dense, so it would be forgiving using a 6mm even.  It’s available in 10 shades, I’m looking forward to trying them all.

I see that this yarn is going to be a knitter’s dream.  I’m already thinking of the beautiful shawls and tops I’m going to be seeing in the very near future!

The yarn goes on sale today, so do keep an eye on your favourite stockists in the Benelux, and Wool Warehouse and Deramores will also have you covered no matter where you live in the world.  If you can’t find it straight away, pop back again for another look.

  1. This yarn is so beautiful and I want to use it in a blanket but it is hand wash only – so disappointed 😦

    • It is beautiful indeed. You’ll be struggling to find any silk blend yarn that is machine washable I’m afraid. It doesn’t take long to dry though, so you would still be able to hand wash and hang outside in the sunshine.
