About the design
Gaia Tarantino from Crafting Tales is the designer of this beautiful wrap, which is named after her inspiration: the magical sea views of the Italian Riviera. The sea and the reflection of the sunrise are highlighted in the design. The Alto Mare wrap can be worn in different styles and fashions.
You need two yarn cakes of Whirl if you want to crochet the Alto Mare Wrap. Depending on your taste, you can make this wrap in every colour you desire! With a composition of 60% cotton / 40% acrylic, the whirl is extremely well-suited for making light and airy projects. Every yarn cake has an enormous length of 1000 meters with lovely long colour changes. Scheepjes Whirl is available in no less than 39 colours.
To make the wrap, you also need one ball of Whirlette. The Whirlette is a 100-grams yarn cake (455m!) with yarn identical to the whirl, except for the whirlette consisting of one colour. The colours of the whirlette perfectly match our Whirl cakes. For an overview of Whirl-Whirlette combinations, click here. Whirlette is available in 19 colours.
Scheepjes Mohair Rhythm
The 'sun' in the pattern is crocheted with Scheepjes Mohair Rhythm. This yarn consists of 70% Mohair and 30% Microfiber, creating a silky soft effect with a deluxe look and feel. Mohair Rhythm is available in 20 colours.
