Scheepjes River Washed - Sport weight cotton-acrylic yarn blend
Why Scheepjes River Washed is a special yarn?
In line with the superior quality of Scheepjes Stone Washed, Scheepjes River Washed is a stunning and robust cotton-blend yarn created through a unique process whereby a dyed cotton core is combined with fluffy acrylic fibres, in either the same or contrasting color. The result is a one of a kind textured effect, giving your knitting and crochet projects a striking and contemporary look!
Scheepjes River Washed is a Sport weight cotton based (78%) yarn blend. A really special yarn with a "tough name" and a soft, woolly feel. It has a warm and soft touch thanks to its 22% acrylic fiber content and stiff and strong at the same time. Stone Washed can work equally well for monochrome designs and also for projects with multiple color changes thanks to its special character. This very popular yarn by Scheepjes adored by both customers and bloggers.
What to knit or crochet from Scheepjes River Washed?
I think it is a perfect yarn for soft, warm colorful baby blankets, amigurumi animals, knitted clothes and crocheted handmade bags, shawls, hats or home decorations for example pillows... Each skein of River Washed has a small magic label “Easy Start” marking the yarn tail hidden inside the ball. Do not forget, that its fluffiness is the reason why the projects made with Stone Washed yarn are very difficult to rip.
