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 metres. 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 thread with a dazzling  result, crocheted or knitted alike. The cakes have an unusually pretty colour progression, 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 boléro, 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 treads through a small bead to help the threads stay together throughout the project.

Love this yarn. Crocheted a shawl as a gift, it turned out beautiful. The recipient loved it too. Prefer this yarn to a well known sch brand as the colour change is much smoother.


Frances Hamson

This is a lovely yarn, which although not twisted, does not easily split. I have made a shawl for a gift and the finished effect is very pretty.


Yvonne

Third of the way through knitting a shawl with 14 Mystic Opal and one strand has completely disappeared (left with a cut end) so yarn has now gone down to 3ply instead of 4ply. Not impressed
