My Tribe, Our Yarn

There are times when you feel like a princess, and this is one of those times. I have my very own yarn! Yes, you read that right, I have my very own yarn. I feel like a princess that has a rose named after her, that’s how special it feels.

Let me tell you all about it. Last year during our annual Scheepjes blogger days we were given the opportunity to design our very own yarn. We could select up to 6 shades that would be turned into a variegated yarn. We were given, I am not lying, more than 10.000 shade cards to choose from. Having 15 or so bloggers meant loads of debating, chatting, cutting, deleting, rearranging, thinking, thinking some more, asking for feedback, starting over again, and finally finding the perfect set of shades to match each of our personalities.

When designing my yarn I wanted colors that would be elegant, a bit in the background perhaps but with a little zing to it nonetheless. My final combination has muted bordeaux running into soft greys and a little mustard yellow to add that little bit of spice. Everyone agreed that these colors were “me”, although I’m still not sure what that “me” is exactly 😀 In my notebook the colors I selected; I still love these colors. Yellow, pink and grey is one of my favorite color combinations.

If you look at the ball from the top you can see the yellow, bordeaux, pink and grey shades running into one another. Our Tribe yarn is 70% Merino superwash, 30% polyamide sport weight and each 100gram ball has a handsome 420metres of yarn.

Scheepjes Our Tribe is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/Int), Love Crafts (USA), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU) or your favorite Scheepjes Stockist.

And just in case you don’t believe me, it has my name on the label. But my name was too long for the label, so I am missing a few characters 😀

With love,

  1. That’s really exciting, but as with all yarns, particularly variegated and/or self-striping, I’d like to see what it looks like knit up into socks…

      1. I’ve ordered some and will let you know when I make socks with it. I live in Canada, so it usually takes 10 days to get here, and I’ll knit the socks in Christmas week 🙂

  2. Well that got me. When I read the first few words I’m thinking to myself I bet it’s purple. Wrong. It looks great Esther. No wonder you are so pleased.
