*Since its launch in May 2015 our beautiful Scheepjes Catona yarns have become a 'go-to' yarn for many crafters. This 100% mercerised cotton yarn comes in an enormous number of colours.

** Scheepjes Spirit is the newest Scheepjes yarn and the shades are named after Spirit Animals. All different colours are like Spirit Animals, strong but also subtle and soft. Scheepjes Spirit is a fine mix of 56% cotton and 44% acrylic, which results in a natural, soft and warm "look and feel".

Hygge’ (pronounced ‘Hoo-ga’) is a Danish word, which means cosiness. Imagine being in a warm and welcoming environment whilst enjoying the good things in life. Snuggling on the sofa crafting, enjoying a good meal, wearing your favourite sweater, drinking a warm cup of tea, getting together with friends to talk and create, its all Hygge.

Designer Kirsten Ballering from blog Haak Maar Raak has been working with Scheepjes to plan this beautiful Scandinavian themed crochet-along. We teamed up the wonderful Stone Washed with our colourful Catona yarns for a beautiful contrast. Kirsten was inspired by traditional Scandinavian designs to decorate this wrap with a combination of both crochet and cross-stitch.

Kits are available in 3 colour themes: Rainbow, Jewel and Simy's Choice.

The CAL started in February and has since ended. All the instruction are available online at Scheepjes dot com
