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.

More than a sock yarn

By: on 21 April 2020
This is technically a sock yarn but because of the 50g balls and the variety of colours, I thought I would cast on a colourwork jumper with it. I have created a gradient effect with three colours and it is so pretty. The fabric created is beautifully soft to touch and I achieved the drape I was after on 3.75mm needles. To put this in context if I was making socks I would use 2.25mm needles. I really like the way the heathered nature of the colours make them all look so great together. Very happy with how this yarn is knitting up. It's springy with a lovely high twist without being ropey. I am looking forward to making socks with the leftovers!
