Felted Tweed is a blend of merino wool, alpaca and viscose, and is available in a wide range of colours. The yarn has a beautiful tweed effect which lends itself well to Fair Isle and other colour work. It knits to a DK tension.
This yarn has a lightly pre-felted texture that produces a lightweight fabric with a slightly felted effect. Care is needed when washing to prevent the fibres felting further – please see care instructions.
