Felted Tweed is a blend of merino wool, alpaca and viscose and knits to a DK weight. The yarn has a beautiful tweed effect perfect for fairisles, striping and other colour work, and the rustic colour palette makes this yarn a firm favourite with 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.

if you are ordering online just by colour, be advised this is a very thin DK, quite lacy on 4mm, and is a bit hairy. Can't see the felted look yet, only done about 6". nonetheless, it seems a nice summer weight wool, which is what I was looking for.
lovely to knit with,the stitches well defined
