Scheepjes Legacy Mercerised Cotton

Please note this is the mercerised cotton version of Legacy.

Discover the nostalgic crochet cotton of the future! Scheepjes Legacy exudes a feeling of history and brings to mind fond memories of handcrafting and times gone by. A time when grandmothers and great-grandmothers made doilies, table runners and even christening gowns in the timeless, neutral shades of white and ecru. Each and every item was handmade with love and passed down from generation to generation within a family. Legacy yarns are made to keep these traditions alive as lovingly crocheted projects, and the memories they hold, are passed on to be treasured for many future generations to come.

Legacy is a collection of a premium blend traditional 100% Cotton and 100% Mercerised Cotton thread yarns. These soft, breathable yarns have an increased twist and density, which ensures the durability to stand the test of time for many years to come.

Scheepjes Legacy is available in two variations, the 100% Cotton range consisting of yarns with a natural ‘matte' look, giving projects a soft and understated appearance and the 100% Mercerised Cotton range, which distinguishes itself with its wonderfully smooth strand and subtle sheen. Both are available in the classic shades of white and undyed ecru, in in thread weights no. 6, no. 8, no. 10, and no. 12, providing plenty of choice to craft your legacy. 

Scheepjes Legacy joins Scheepjes’ ever-expanding collection of waste water created yarns, making Legacy a perfect choice for eco-conscious crafters looking for a thread yarn that can be safely passed down from generation to generation. It is also EN71-3 certified, opening up the possibility to use Legacy to craft children’s garments.
