Scheepjes Colour Crafter: A yarn stash staple.

I wanted to introduce y’all to a durable DK yarn that I just started using. Chances are if Scheepjes Colour Crafter isn’t already your go-to DK powerhouse, you have one that popped in your mind. I used to use a different one too, (probably the one you thought of!!) but the moment I laid hand on Colour Crafter, I never looked back.

Check out this rich palette – can you tell I’m amped for Fall? I’ll be using these colors for an awesome pattern coming soon! Y’all will love it!


This is only part of the selection that I have right now, and I suspect I’ll have all 93 (!) colors soon..

Here’s another palette that I’m using to update my Desert Bloom BlanketΒ pattern. I love this yarn so much that I’m starting fresh with a whole new – larger – Desert Bloom in Colour Crafter.

So what’s the yarn like? Scheepjes CC is ultra squishy and plush. Acrylic and easy care. One of the reasons I like it is that there isn’t much of a sheen like some other brands. But it isn’t stiff either – super soft and velvety smooth. I know this sounds crazy, but I actually think it makes me crochet faster because it doesn’t create a whole lot of friction with the hook.


The yardage is wonderful on this economy ball: 100g = 300m.

If you’re ready for a change or want to try something new, give it a shot!

Check out the Velvet* version – a funky mix of faded glory that will have you hooking some fresh pieces!
