Crochet, Other nutty stuff

My Tribe Swatched

A few months ago I showed you my very own yarn, my Scheepjes It’s all in a nutshell Our Tribe yarn. Many of you were enthusiastic about the new yarn, but rightly so, many of you wanted to know what my yarn looks like worked up.

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. Yellow, pink and grey is one of my favorite color combinations.

So what does my yarn look like worked up? I spend an afternoon or two working up a simple meshed triangle swatch to give you an idea of what my yarn looks like worked up. You can see the colors blending into one another without having any distinct start or finish of one color or the other.

Now that you know what my colorway looks like I am sure that you are also curious about what all the other colorways look like swatched up. Fear not, Tammy from Canadutch comes to the rescue with a detailed post showing swatches using all the colorways in the Our Tribe range.

Our Tribe yarn is 70% Merino superwash, 30% polyamide sport weight and each 100gram ball has a handsome 420metres of yarn. If you are wanting to purchase my “It’s all in a Nutshell” Our Tribe yarn, or any of the other shades designed by my fellow bloggers, Our Tribe is available from Wool Warehouse (UK/Int), Caro’s Atelier (NL/EU), and many other Scheepjes stockists.

It is spring time, and honestly I am in total need of color after the dark winter months. I couldn’t help it, I just had to buy flowers this week!

I hope you have a lovely day.

With love,
