Introducing a new yarn by Scheepjes*! I’m welcoming Maxi Bonbon* laceweight thread to my Scheepjes stash ❤️❤️ There are 87 shades of this 25gr teensy yarn – each little ball is about 2.25″ tall, and recommended hook size is 1.25mm. It’s truly the cutest thing!
Check out this color range – wowzers! Colors match back to Catona* too – so neat.
And you just know I had to organize all the yarn in some kind of rainbow… Goodness this was fun, and challenging. There are just so many colors!
So what’s the yarn like? Well it’s a mercerized cotton, so you can think “small hook”, but I actually chose to hold it double on my prototype project and use a size G hook. That worked really well! Especially if you’re like me and you get scared by a 1.25mm hook 😝😝
- 100% mercerised cotton, high twist, Lace weight (2ply) yarn
- 25g = 140m
- Available in 87 colours
- Perfect for smaller projects, or larger projects where you’d like to use a lot of colours. Ideal for small home decor projects, jewellery, amigurumi, accessories etc. Perfect for filet crochet and lacework
- Use with a finer crochet hook for a sturdy shape or with a larger hook for a softer drape
A sneak peek of one way that I’ll be using the yarn in my Bonbon project! Look out for a pretty square with a color-fade effect based on a classic quilt block. Coming soon!
