50g tweed yarn
Felted Tweed is a versatile, cozy yarn, a classic among tweed yarns. The composition is sophisticated: the fine merino wool is combined with alpaca, which is particularly warm, so that knitted items are light and warm despite the long length of the yarn. The viscose makes the yarn robust - it can easily be machine washed on the wool cycle.
Ideal for Fair Isle and other color knitting. In a wonderful, extensive and harmonious color palette. This is how multiple knitting becomes a real treat.
Rowan first launched this yarn in 2002. At that time it had a color palette of 12 colors. In the meantime there are more than 50 colors, which testifies to the extraordinary, worldwide popularity of this yarn.
Whether Fair Isle or cable knit, shawl or outerwear, this tweed yarn always cuts a fine figure. It is the modern interpretation of a tweed yarn. Tweeds have a long tradition in the British Isles. In the damp and cool climate, clothing made of wool yarns that still provide warmth even when damp has always been a must.
The character of the knitted fabric is similar to tweed fabrics rather rustic. The roughened wool and alpaca provide warmth, the viscose makes it smooth and supple.
