Have you seen the latest yarn offering from Scheepjes?
None of us Scheepjes bloggers are being particularly “yoga” in our responses to this release. Instead we’re all much more Jane Fonda, circa 1982, jumping around in our enthusiasm! (and spandex?)
Namaste is a gorgeous bulky yarn; a virgin wool and acrylic blend, spun in a way that reminds me of the roving yarn that’s so popular right now.
The yarn calls for 8mm hooks and needles, and there is 85m in a 100g ball. It’s also available in 33 different shades, and you can see all of my favourites are there! Take a look at the Ravelry page for all the details.
I have a couple of projects in the works with this yarn, the first in the lovely teal shade (Dolphin) and another in light grey (warrior). I can’t wait to show you the progress pics!
I couldn’t wait to see how it worked up, so I made a simple granny square, and it really is very nice. It’s smooth, and has a slight sheen, and even though it’s a single ply, it’s not too hard to frog.
And, of course it has the famed Easy Start tab which we all love so much.
I haven’t knitted with it yet, but Carmen has, and it’s just as pretty!

Knitting with @scheepjes Namaste feels like a dream! 😍 So soft and it works up super quickly on 8mm needles, that sure does make for some therapeutic knitting! I'm thinking of making a nice and cosy hat with this yarn 💕 #scheepjesnamaste #scheepjesbloggers #craftingisthenewyoga #nevernotknitting #knittingischeaperthantherapy
While you’re waiting for my project(s) to evolve, pop over to Rachele at Cypress Textiles for her free Shavasana motif and her thoughts on the yarn.
Namaste (I always feel so cheesy saying that. I feel like I need to add an exclamation point, but that isn’t very namaste, is it?)
