I’m interrupting regular programming to bring you a peek what might well be my new favourite Scheepjes yarn (big call) – Whirl Fine Art!
Available in a selection of 12 colourways named and inspired by major movements in art history – you’ll be able to find one to match your most beloved moment in time.
Where to Buy?
Because the yarn is brand new, not all stockists have it listed yet, but Scheepjes has all of their stockists here.
Meanwhile, these shops have it up and ready to go already:
Wool Warehouse* ships to the UK and globally
Caro’s Atelier* ships to the Netherlands and Europe
Whirl Fine Art is a gradient yarn in the style of Whirl, Woolly Whirl and Whirligig. It’s a composition of 50% Superfine Merino, 25% Microfibre and 25% Acrylic and has a recommended hook/needle size of 4-5mm. The yarn weight is DK and you’ll get 460m for your 515-225g cake. The yarn has an RRP of €33,95 / £29.99 / USD $37.95.
Also fun to know; Fine Art is a sister yarn to Merino Soft – another of my favourites – and Scheepjes has broadened their collection there to make sure that there will always be a perfect Fine Art partner. Scheepjes creative director Simy has shared an informative and inspiring post about pairing the colours, go check it out!
I was lucky enough to receive a cake in colourway Modernism from Scheepjes at our latest Bloggers Retreat and I’m squirrelling away on a new pattern which I’ll bring to you in the deepest darkest days of winter.
In the meantime, Tammy has been swatching, take a look: Whirl Fine-Art: A Closer Look. She’s also working on a knit project, so I’m super curious to know what will come of it!
Keep an eye out over the coming weeks, I’ll be sharing more pics as my project grows, I can’t wait to share it with you!
