Terrazzo is made from a Premium blend of 70% Recycled Mulesing Free Wool and 30% Recycled Viscose. This felted, tweed yarn has a luxurious look and feel. The subtly speckled color effect, reminiscent of terrazzo floors, is achieved by twisting fibers of contrasting and complementary colors.
Scheepjes Terrazzo benefits from the breathability of Wool and Viscose and combines the best qualities of both. Lightweight Viscose is moisture absorbent and gives a silky soft feel with beautiful drape, while the wool contributes the rustic appearance and wonderful warmth. This makes Terrazzo suitable for a diverse range of crochet and knitting projects of all shapes and sizes: from clothing, such as sweaters and cardigans, to fashion accessories and homeware. It’s perfect also for knitting and crocheting in multiple colors and can be effectively combined with Scheepjes yarns in other textures, such as Alpaca Rhythm and Mohair Rhythm.
To ensure projects crafted with Scheepjes Terrazzo stay looking their absolute best, Scheepjes have updated and clarified the advice for laundering. Scheepjes recommend hand washing only, at a maximum temperature of 30°C. To prevent possible further felting, the item should be washed separately, with minimal agitation. Excess water should be gently squeezed out, rather than wrung.
