The Definitive Guide to Whirl and Whirlette Combinations 2.0!

From the day we developed our popular Whirl yarns at Scheepjes, right up until now, Whirl has and continues to be one of my favourite yarn collections to date – what can I say, I love colour! 
Al vanaf de eerste dag dat we begonnen met het ontwikkelen van Scheepjes Whirl garens is Whirl altijd mijn favoriete garencollectie geweest. En weet je wat? Dat is het nog steeds! Ik hou gewoon erg van kleur!

From seeing all your fantastic creations in the Scheepjes groups and across social media, I’ve also come to the conclusion that Scheepjes fans really love colour too. You’ve been collecting these scrumptious yarn cakes over the years, re-winding the colourways to see how they look in reverse, snapping lovely pictures of them displayed in your craft spaces, and producing the most gorgeous projects with them.
Na het zien van al jullie fantastische creaties in de Scheepjes Facebookgroepen en op social media ben ik tot de conclusie gekomen dat ook Scheepjes fans enorm van kleur houden. De afgelopen jaren hebben jullie de verrukkelijke Whirl garencakes verzameld, in omgekeerde volgorde opnieuw opgewonden, gefotografeerd in de meest jaloersmakende craft-ruimtes en uiteraard omgetoverd tot prachtige items.

Die-hard fans will know that since Whirl launched back in March 2017, Scheepjes have expanded the range considerably, and that included launching Whirl’s sister yarn Whirlette in September that same year. At the time, I published my Definitive Guide to Whirl and Whirlette to showcase all the possible combinations.
De die-hard fans zullen weten dat sinds de lancering van Whirl in maart 2017 Scheepjes dit assortiment aanzienlijk heeft uitgebreid. Bovendien is in september van datzelfde jaar Whirls zustergaren Whirlette gelanceerd, destijds liet ik in mijn  Definitive Guide to Whirl and Whirlette alle mogelijke combinaties zien.

But through all the excitement for Whirl over the last few years, our Whirlette range has lagged a little behind, until today! With the launch of 25 new Whirlette colours, Scheepjes now offers at least one Whirlette to coordinate with every single Whirl colourway*.
Maar door al het enthousiasme voor Whirl is onze Whirlette collectie een beetje achtergebleven, tot vandaag! Met de lancering van 25 nieuwe Whirlette kleuren biedt Scheepjes nu tenminste één passende Whirlette bij iedere kleur Whirl *.

So, without further ado, I wish to present my Definitive Guide to Whirl and Whirlette 2.0! 
Ik presenteer daarom nu mijn Definitive Guide to Whirl and Whirlette 2.0!

*The Whirlette’s are matched to either the innermost or outermost (or both) shade(s) of Whirl colourways.
*De Whirlettes zijn afgestemd op de binnenste of buitenste (of beide) kleur(en) van Whirl.

  1. So happy to see these new Whirlette colors -- I've been waiting for 890 all my life, haha.
    I do not see two of the new colors listed in the above post though: 871 Coulis and 889 Sage. I would love to know which Whirls match to 871 and 889. Thank you for this lovely resource!

    1. Hello Lavenderlizard - I'm thrilled you are so happy to see these colours, especially 890! Thank you for your question about Whirlette colours 871 and 889. Although there is now at least 1 Whirlette to match all Whirl colourways' inner or outermost shade, not all Whirlettes have a matching Whirl the other way around. These shades are 2 exceptions I'm afraid. They can of course be paired with many colourways (I particularly like Coulis with Fruity O Tutti) but not 'seamlessly'. Do let me know if you have any further questions :)

  2. What is the fiber content of the whirlette ?

    1. For the normal whirlette it's 60% Cotton, 40% Acrylic. There's also a wooly whirlette that's 30% Wool, 70% Cotton.

    2. That's correct Mogwyne! You know your Scheepjes yarns well ;)

  4. Can anyone tell me if the outside color of Whirl 753 (Slice 'O' Cherry Pie) is the same as the inside color of Whirl 789 (Tasty Nom Nom)? I wonder if they can be used seamlessly.

  5. Do you recommend any other Whirlette colorways for Whirl 767? I'm torn.

    1. The only exactly matching Whirlette shade for Whirl 767 is Whirlette 866 (for a seamless join), however I think this Whirl colourway looks lovely paired with any of the soft pastel shade of Whirlette! Hope this helps :)

  6. Do you think Grappa Whirlette would go with Turkish Delight Whirl?

    1. Whirl Turkish Delight pairs seamlessly with Whirlette 778 and 892, whereas Grappa isn't a direct match. It may still work in combination with Turkish Delight depending on your project :)

  8. I'd like a match with whirl 781 sea breeze tease but the whirlette 854 is too dark. I'd like a similar shade to the outside, I'm considering frosted 872 or bubble 866 or mint 856 or just go with ice 860. Which do you think would be best?
    Many thanks Susan (sorry I can't seem to get my name to appear instead of "unknown"

    1. I've decided to go for it and ordered Sea Breeze Tease, frosted and mint whirlettes.
      The new frosted colour 872 appears to be an exact match for the outside of sea breeze. Yay!

    2. Hello Susan! Oh I've fallen a little behind on my comments, my apologies. These sounds like gorgeous choices, I am glad you found your Whirl flavour ;) happy crafting!

  9. Do you think that 888 would work with Poppin Candy? I realise it's a much deeper purple but I'm thinking Huldra or similar tops where it would look good to have mainly a dark colour and I have three Whirls, Poppin Candy, Blueberry Bam Bam and Sea Breeze Tease the Sea Breeze I had in mind for a different project.

    1. A rich purple with lighter shades can work very well. Have you gone ahead with this Whirl and Whirlette colour palette? :)

  10. Hi! Would it be possible to add a little note if it's a match for the inside or the outside colour? I just had a big surprise with the Jumpin Jaffa Pop because in the photo the Whirlette totally looked like the darker inside colour, but it's actually the lighter outside... :)

    1. What a good suggestion, Dia. I have made a personal note to add this to the blogpost, thank you for your feedback :)

  11. I am working on a shawl in the Tasty Nom Nom, but I'm looking for a colour to match with the innermost shade. I'm hoping to get the whole shawl done with the one ball, but it has an i-cord bind off and knowing my luck I'll underestimate the crap out of it. I wish I would have looked into it more when I started so I started in the middle of the ball instead, but alas, here we are.

    1. Hi Rita, 855 Grappa will suit the outermost shade, but for the innermost, that's a little tricky to say. I'd go for a shade with brown or burgundy tones in it for the closest match. How is the project going? :)
