Rowan Felted Tweed

$ 14.50

Felted Tweed DK is a wonderful, tweedy yarn with a felted look. It's a beautiful blend of merino wool, alpaca and viscose rayon and one of our all-time favorites. The extensive rustic colour palette makes this yarn perfect for Fair Isle, striping and other color work. 

Margaret knitted up her "Tincture" hat by Andrea Mowry, in one ball of Aluminum and one ball of Treacle on size 8 (5mm) needles.  Color combinations are practically limitless. You can find this pattern on Ravelry. 

"In the Loop" is a cozy cowl that has soothing stripes in two different widths to create visual interest.  It is fun to knit in 5 colors of Felted Tweed.  Our model was knit with 2 skeins of 211 Black and 197 Alabaster and one skein each of 220 Sulfur, 185 Frozen and 159 Carbon.  We've also put together an alternative color choice with two skeins of 159 Carbon and 210 Aluminum and one skein each of 152 Watery, 802 Dusk Rose and 2020 Turquoise.  You can find our curated kits here.  The cowl is knit with size 6 (4mm) and size 7 (4.5mm) needles.  The pattern by Espace Tricot is available on Ravelry.
