Garnstudio DROPS Soft Tweed
Regular price $10.00
DROPS Soft Tweed is, like its name implies, a super soft tweed yarn, made from a combination of merino wool, superfine alpaca and viscose. The yarn is constructed by carding these fibers together with small felted “tweed buttons” that add speckles of color to define the look of this quality.
Rustic and elegant, this yarn is easy to knit and results in beautiful, even stitches. It's a great choice for textured patterns, slipovers, sweaters and jackets. Being a carded yarn means that Soft Tweed is lighter and breathes better than similar, combed yarns - while being specially suited for hand knitting.
