The Colourwheel Advantage

Authentic Colourwheel DK is superior to most other cake yarns …

  • The use of DK as opposed to aran gives a finer finish & better drape to the garment – especially good for scarves & neck wraps
  • Each pattern is specially designed to be completed with just one single “wheel” with each ball yielding an amazing 520mt/568yd
  • The gradual colour changes in the dye finish means your project fades subtly from colour to colour without abrupt stoppages between shades
  • There are up to 8 different shade variations in each individual cake with NO repetition. Many other cake yarns have just 4-5  shades and repeat the hues to give the illusion of more colours. Colourwheel allows your garment to show the full effect of colour changes, rather than an abrupt stripy effect.

Sirdar Colourwheel Cake Yarn Ball shotIn addition, there is a collection of 8 incredible patterns of one-ball accessory designs (plus a free wrap pattern on the ball band!).

Colourwheel is a standard double knitting 20% wool blend yarn and will knit to all Sirdar DK patterns.

Cake yarns are not made equal and Sirdar gives you a quality, texture and colour not seen in other cake yarns. Click here see the product range and click here to find a retailer.
