This delicious gradient yarn from Scheepjes comes in 54 scrumptious color 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 ‘flavor’ all of its own! The Extra Large yarn cake holds an enormous 1000 meters/1093 yards of softly color changing yarn, more than enough for a large shawl or wrap. Each color change is carefully tied in an optimum way to ensure the knot can be discreetly hidden within your stitches.

Scheepjes Whirl matches perfectly with Scheepjes Whirlette. The unicolor shades of Scheepjes Whirlette coordinate perfectly to match either the inner or outer colors of the Whirl yarn cakes, which is ideal for extending a gradient project or, for example, adding edging to the sleeves or neckline of a cardigan. 

The Aurora Collection
The Aurora Collection consists of 4 Stunning shades of Scheepjes Whirl (color 785 - 788), based on the beautiful & mesmerizing natural phenomena of The Northern Lights! Each cake in the Aurora collection starts with the deep grey of a winter sky which gently turns into an Aurora color. These yarn cakes work independently as all our Whirl cakes do, but are fabulous to use in combination with each other as the colors have been carefully chosen to work together to produce a magical color palette for larger projects.

The Ombré Collection
The Special Edition Series Whirl Ombré consists of 15 shades (color 551 - 565). Each color-way is a single color gradually and softly changing from its deepest to its lightest shade.
