 Introducing the Official d’Histoire Naturelle Scheepjes CAL 2020 & Read-A-Long! 

It’s with a whole lot of excitement and a great deal of honour that we officially launch our very special CAL and Read-A-Long for 2020! Watch the video below! 

 

The d'Histoire Naturelle Blanket, designed by Scheepjes Blogger Christina of A Spoonful of Yarn blog, is designed to whisk you away to Paris, France, as you crochet your way around the astounding Muséum National d’Histoire Naturelle (Museum of Natural History), all the while reading Anthony Doerr’s best-selling novel All the Light We Cannot See: the inspiration behind this incredible design.

 

Created in four beautiful colourways inspired by the colours and textures to be found across four departments of the Museum in Paris, in our Stone Washed and River Washed or Colour Crafter yarns, we hope this CAL can enrich your time spent at home by offering a mindful outlet and opportunity to explore new places through the power of crochet and a little creativity.
