Final sale on all cut fabrics and yarns
Twirls is a brand new and fabulous "cake yarn" made from 100% soft cotton. The texture of this yarn is 4 thin cotton threads which makes it perfect for shawls, afghans and scarves, where the long colour changes will come out perfectly.
Cotton Kings Twirls is available in many magnificent colour combinations and is presented in big luscious 200 gram balls with a meterage of approximately 800 meters. Shades 6-10 are the popular tone-on-tone colour changes and they change one thread at a time. This spreads out the long colour changes over the 800 metres of threads with a dazzling result, crocheted or knitted alike. The cakes have an unusually pretty colour progressions, where the nuances change from light to dark - or the other way around depending on whether you start with the inside or the outside thread.
Use the Twirl cakes for shawls and summery scarves, allowing the change in nuances to shine, in one long handmade creation. A pretty bolero, a summer dress or summer top, where it will give you a delicate dip dye effect, could also be just the ticket for both adults and children.
It takes about one cake to make one shawl or scarf.
Pro tip: Before you start working the Twirl cake, run all 4 threads through a small bead to help the threads stay together throughout the project.
