Scheepjes Metropolis is 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 colors 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! Being able to handle colour-work and cables, Scheepjes Metropolis has been designed to suit your every need, with its extensive range of colors inspiring endless possibilities.
Scheepjes Metropolis and Scheepjes Downtown go hand in hand. They share the same weight and fiber composition and Downtown’s colorways have been developed to compliment the existing Metropolis shades. Plus, both are more than just a sock yarn! This makes them a strong duo that bring out the best in each other. Just imagine all the possibilities, such as a knitted jumper with contrasting sleeves or striped socks with a unicolor heel and toe!
