Scheepjes Terrazzo recycled tweed wool yarn blend
Why Scheepjes Terrazzo is a special yarn?
Terrazzo is made from a premium blend of 70% Recycled Mulesing Free Wool and 30% Recycled Viscose. This felted, tweed yarn has a luxurious look and feel and is washable up to 30 C. The subtly speckled color effect, reminiscent of terrazzo floors, is achieved by twisting fibres of contrasting and complementary colors.
Scheepjes Terrazzo benefits from the breathability of Wool and Viscose and combines the best qualities of both. Lightweight Viscose is moisture absorbent and gives a silky soft feel with a beautiful drape, while the wool contributes the rustic appearance and wonderful warmth. This makes Terrazzo suitable for a diverse range of crochet and knitting projects of all shapes and sizes: from clothing, such as sweaters and cardigans, to fashion accessories and homeware. Scheepjes Terrazzo is a Light / DK weight yarn (3), the recommended hook and needle size is 4mm, available in 50g (175m) balls.
