Scheepjes Downtown is a self-striping, Premium blend yarn made from Extra Fine Merino Wool and Nylon fibres. This blend of fibres creates a light and warm yarn that is also durable and easy to maintain. Downtown is further characterised by a soft touch, beautiful drape and excellent stitch definition, making it the ideal choice of yarn for making quirky, striped accessories, such as hats, socks and cowls. Downtown is available in 18 colourways.

Scheepjes Downtown and Scheepjes Metropolis go hand in hand. They share the same weight and fibre composition and Downtown’s colourways have been developed to compliment the existing Metropolis shades. Plus, both are more than just a sock yarn! This makes them a strong duo that bring out the best in each other. Just imagine all the possibilities, such as a knitted jumper with contrasting sleeves or striped socks with a uni-colour heel and toe!

Discover all of the possible Metropolis and Downtown combinations on Creative Director Simy's blog.
