Felted Tweed is a beautiful blend of 50% merino wool, 25% alpaca and 25% viscose. The yarn has a beautiful tweed effect, perfect for fairisles, striping and other colour work and is the obvious choice for winter projects. The rustic colour palette makes this yarn a firm favourite, with shades ranging from cool, watery tones, to warming cherry red and fiery ginger.
*Please note, this is a lightly pre-felted yarn. Please follow care instructions, as the yarn may felt further if washed incorrectly.
