Although Metropolis is the perfect sock-yarn, its potential is limitless! Being able to handle colour-work and cables, Scheepjes Metropolis has been designed to suit your every need from shawls, socks and garments galore!
Metropolis; the perfect companion for the urban crafter. With contemporary life bringing with it its many distractions, we all need to find time to slow down, enjoy and maybe do a little crafting. Whether you craft in a city apartment, an urban jungle or a street-side café, feel inspired as Metropolis echoes the vibrant colours of the modern cityscape alongside a lightly heathered effect indicative of urban decay.
Although Metropolis is the perfect sock yarn, thanks to an extra fine merino and nylon blend giving it exceptional softness and strength, its potential is limitless! It would be perfect for jumpers, cardigans, shawls... anything that calls for a 4ply yarn! Being able to handle colour-work and cables, Scheepjes Metropolis has been designed to suit your every need, with its extensive range of beautifully heathered colours inspiring endless possibilities.
We have had people comment that Metropolis does have a tendency to pill when made into garments. This is due to the inherent nature of extra fine merino, and is fixed by using a Fabric Shaver to remove the pills.
