Aren’t these colours just the best?
I have a seriously cool design coming up, using all of these colours, I can’t wait to share it with you over the coming weeks.
Get The Yarn
Scheepjes has the complete list of stockists available on their website, at scheepjes.com. If your favourite retailer doesn’t have Organicon, you can always ask them to get it in – don’t be shy!
Wool Warehouse* is shipping globally again (with some small delays due to C-19), so you can pick it up there.
As you know, Caro’s Atelier* is my local yarn store, so I would also love you to support them. They ship all over Europe.
Black Sheep Wools* is one of the best bricks and mortar stores in the UK, and they’ll also ship to you.
(If you own a yarn store and stock Organicon, please feel free to add direct links to your product page in the comments of this post.)
Scheepjes Organicon is a 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, which is part of a strong push toward sustainability and the need to improve production methods and conscious consumption.
A benefit of this is that Organicon is a deliciously soft yarn which is soft on skin and has a beautiful drape for garments and projects for baby.
Not only is Organicon produced in a sustainable way and unbelievably soft, it’s also vegan friendly, containing no animal products from the production of the cotton through to the dyes used to colour the yarn.
The yarn comes as 50g balls, with 170 metres.
It’s a 4ply (fingering) weight yarn, and a 3mm hook/needles are recommended.
There are 21 colours to choose from, and what I love is that there are light and bright versions of the same colour, so they all work together and can be interchangeable.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the colours I’m using. You’ll have to wait and follow my Instagram feed to keep up with the progress over the next few weeks.
Just a small hint: my project is huge, and is many, many more balls than the three I’ve just shown you. It’s going to be completely worth the effort, and I’m going to have a great pattern to share with you at the end of it.
