Tired of the same-old, same-old? Yeah, me too! No more smooth acrylic yarn! We want to feel the hearty texture of the yarn between our fingers as we crochet! Long live linen!
Okay, well, maybe not. Certainly there’s a place for the powerhouse soft acrylics out there. For the Colour Crafters in life that we need for everyday pieces. Yeah we need those.
Check out this expertly crafted fiber content. It’s like the Negroni of yarn – an indulgent 3-ingredient cocktail (equal parts gin, Campari, sweet vermouth – errr.. linen, cotton, acrylic).
My personal favorite color of Linen Soft! Hummingbird ❤️ – although that mustard pictured in the first photo is wonderful. I love how all of the colors in this range would work well together.
And here is a snapshot of the full palette with just enough colors to get you going on a beautiful project. Note: these yarn info images are from Scheepjes.com Linen Soft Page.
My welcome package as a fresh, new Scheepjes Blogger included these seven balls of Linen Soft yarn among many others that I promptly began to drool over. I used them to work up this sample, took photos, and put everything away. Read more about my beginnings as a Scheepjes Blogger here.
Fast forward about a year after the above photo was taken, and this sample became the Amazon Blanket pattern published in Scheepjes YARN 03, the tropical issue. I am still in love with this rich color palette and trust me when I say it’s not out of my system yet. These bright, tropical colors have my heart ❤️
