Playing With Yarn

Sweet Treat is sweet as candy! 

Introducing a new yarn by Scheepjes*! I’m welcoming Sweet Treat* 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 😝😝

Info drill-down:

  • 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

Here’s a closeup so you can see the sheen. Not too shiny. The hook is an H in the photo – I was holding it from a different project 🙂 .

A sneak peek of one way that I’ll be using the yarn in my Sweet Treat project! Look out for a pretty square with a color-fade effect based on a classic quilt block. Coming soon! 

And of course I had to make a color wheel! 

Ooooo, aaaahhhhh – absolutely gorgeous!
