We are pleased to announce that the all new line of 100% recycled yarn by Scheepjes!
Considered by many to be the “original recycled material”, the remarkable texture, colours and built-in sustainability of
Terrazzo translates perfectly into our first 100% recycled yarn! Named after the Italian word for “terrace”, Terrazzo inspires the yarn’s rustic look and feel, with multicoloured flecks mimicking the way this classic material catches the light and intensifies colour in the sunshine. The timeless aesthetic of Terrazzo tiles is modernized in this Premium Blend yarn that’s perfect for knitting and crocheting high quality garments, homeware and accessories.
Thanks to the natural properties of wool, Scheepjes Terrazzo is lightweight and warm, with added softness and easy-care properties afforded by blending wool with viscose. Composed of multi-tonal base shades that are enhanced by contrasting and complementing flecks of colour, the result is a felted, tweed effect yarn with gentle stitch definition and impressive texture.
Terrazzo is DK weight available in 50 g donut balls that are 175 m each. Suggested needle and hook size is 4.00 mm.
Available in a huge range of 60 colourways, out Terrazzo yarn makes a wonderful sustainable choice for colourwork techniques such as Fair Isle knitting and Brioche crochet. We are so pleased to announce that one of Scheepjes most popular designers has released a free pattern for this beautiful yarn! Check out the Diversion Scarf by Dedru Uys of Look at What I Made using 8 colours from the new Terrazzo line. There are also a few gauge swatch pictures to be found on the pattern page which lets use see just how beautiful this yarn is when it’s worked up.
