Scheepjes Catona is one of the most popular yarns, here at Baa. Our crochet customers love the colour palette for Amigurumi and homeware. Our knitters love it for garments and kitchenware. Scheepjes Catona Denim is the same yarn but with a semi-solid appearance inspired by the appearance of faded denim. Each colour combines dark and light shades, creating unique knit and crochet stitches with subtle colour accents.

Catona Denim by Scheepjes
About Scheepjes.... Around 1750, the processing of wool became the most important industry in Veenendaal in the province of Utrecht. In the beginning it was mostly a cottage industry but by the end of the 17th century small businesses had started to emerge. The Scheepjes brand was one of them and stood the test of time overcoming many setbacks until 1988 when a shrinking market and cheaper products from Europe eventually led to the demise of the company. Twenty-two years later, family-owned business De Bondt, took over the Scheepjeswol name and gave it a new lease of life. As a result we once again have wonderful yarns from this famous Dutch brand.
