Yarn Facts

About This Yarn

Specially created for shawl-making, this feather-light yarn is enriched with alpaca and wool for warmth in gently self-striping shades inspired by a dried vintage bouquet. Many of the most popular shawl yarns feature hand-dyed natural fibres with beautiful colour effects. Sirdar Shawlie captures the premium look of these hand-dyed yarns, at a more affordable price.

What's it like to work with?

A little finer than DK, with a gentle haze, Sirdar Shawlie makes the most of lacy stitches and shaping for beautiful drape. Soft and warm to the touch, Shawlie glides over needles and crochet hooks for the last word in enjoyable shawl-making.

What is it best for?

The name tells the story, Sirdar Shawlie has all of the qualities essential for a successful shawl: lightweight warmth, gorgeous drape and softly self-striping elegant shades. Our research shows that 75% of knitters and crochets make shawls, and they’re great to fit in between other projects. So if you haven’t already caught the bug, Sirdar Shawlie is a great reason to try.
