Each shade of Scheepjes River Washed XL takes its name from a famous river around the world. Made using a combination of 70% cotton and 30% acrylic, this aran weight yarn is a wonderful vegan friendly alternative for your winter knitting and crochet projects. It’s breathable, long lasting and has a wool like quality that will carry you through all seasons.

Scheepjes River Washed is also available as a 4-ply,so you can use it for your finer knits too. 

Love this yarn? Take a look at Scheepjes Stone Washed XL. It has all the characteristics of its sister yarn, River Washed, but has a white inner core within its coloured haze. Combine the two for impeccable results.
