Felted Tweed DK is a wonderful, tweedy yarn with a felted look. It is a beautiful blend of merino wool, alpaca and viscose rayon. The rustic color palette makes this yarn perfect for Fair Isle stranded color work, striping and other color work. A firm favorite with our designers.
(Please note, this is a lightly pre-felted yarn that knits to a lightweight fabric with a felted effect. Please follow care instructions, as the yarn may felt further if washed incorrectly.)
