Scheepjes River Washed Yarn Review

For my last pattern of 2017, I used this amazing Scheepjes River Washed XL yarn.  I loved working with this yarn, and I think it works well for my amigurumi and lovey creations.  I always use a 4mm (G) hook for my amigurumis, and the result is fantastic!  The smaller hook creates a tighter stitch definition and it makes great shapes.  For loveys, I like to use a 5mm (H) hook for the blanket.  The stitches are just a little looser, and the effect looks wonderful.  You can see the way the River Washed yarn worked up in my Mel the Monster and Friends patterns.

There are 14 different colors of River Washed yarn, each named after rivers around the world.  The curious thing about this yarn is the color.  You choose a shade, but each one is actually composed of several colors!  The main “core” of the yarn is one solid color, then there’s a fluffy outer layer that is made up of other colors.  For example, the blue that I used for Mel (the Colorado colorway) is surrounded with some very nice red tones, and the green (the Congo colorway) has small yellow details. It’s like the yarn has a halo, and the colors are fantastic!  The yarn is available in both a Sport weight, and an Aran weight.  I used the River Washed XL Aran weight for my little monsters.  I really can’t say enough wonderful things about this yarn!!
