WHAT IS IT?
Whoopi is a blend of 50% wool and 50% viscose combined to create a white, slightly lustrous, smooth, dense woolly yarn. This yarn has been wound straight onto hanks direct from the spinning process and therefore to avoid unnecessary extra knots or joins, we are leaving them just as they have come to us. This means that the skeins vary in size slightly and there may also be the odd knot (or two) where the reeler has had to join two ends.
WHAT'S IT FOR?
Let the yarn inspire you to create the chunkiest of projects. Brilliant for extreme knitting and crochet, mega knotting and weaving pieces and fantastic for sculptural installations.
Designers and students needing a wow factor love this yarn as it has so many possibilities for dramatic creations.
The yarn will dye, but due to the blend of both animal and vegetable fibres dye with either acid or procion dyes to give a muted, denim type effect, or dye with both dyes so all the fibres take the pigment. It could also be painted with silk paints or other types of dyes straight onto the yarn if you don’t have a big enough dye bath!
Think rugs, hammocks, pots and vessels, hair for dolls…or yourself!
Suitable Crafts: Extreme knitting, mega crochet, huge weaving, chunky knotting, dyeing.
