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!
Here’s another palette that I’m using to update my Desert Bloom Blanket 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.
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!
Pick up Scheepjes Colour Crafter at Wool Warehouse* – you won’t be disappointed, I promise!
