During MAY-TROPOLIS, we'll delve into this remarkably soft yarn and explore its wonderful qualities!
So let's remind ourselves a little about this fantastic yarn!!

About Metropolis

Metropolis is a lightly heathered, Fingering weight sock yarn made from an Extra Fine Merino and Nylon blend. It's decadently Soft but "oh so" strong! Not only does this yarn have a gorgeous texture, but it's also available in a massive range of 80 colours! Providing tons of opportunities for creativity within your craft projects!

So much more than socks!

Although perfect for socks, this is definitely not just a sock yarn! 
Thanks to the excellent stitch definition afforded by Metropolis, both knitters and crocheters will love creating a wide range of items with this premium-quality yarn. Just take a look at the swatches below to see how Metropolis works up. It's equally as striking knitted as it is crocheted.

 Metropolis is ideal for creating lightweight garments, wearable accessories, soft toys and home decor items. In a range of 80 colours, Metropolis is perfect for Fair Isle, colourwork, tapestry crochet and any project where colour play is a focus. 


Colours Galore!

All 80 glorious shades are available in both 50g balls and in a stunning colour pack featuring all 80 shades in cute 10g balls, all showcased in an excellent carry case. It's an ideal purchase for anybody who wants to experiment with many colours. 


Being made with 75% Extra Fine Merino Wool and 25% Nylon, this durable yarn can be washed on a warm but gentle cycle at a maximum temperature of 40° C. It can also be ironed, which means it's a reasonably easy yarn to care for. 

Pair With Other Yarns

Not happy just offering you the incredible range of Metropolis yarn, this yarn also works fantastically paired with its sibling yarn, Scheepjes Downtown! Metropolis shares Downtown's fibre content and yarn weight, which means they work exceptionally well together within a project.
