Peru Tweed

This lovely alpaca, merino, viscose & poly yarn from Trendsetter knits at an aran gauge ( 4 sts/inch US 9) but is lightweight and gives the fabric a soft halo texture on top of the tweed nub!

The yarn comes in a deep, rich, earthy palette I associate with autumn and each skein feautres 192 yards of textural and color interest-perfect for a simple stockinette or garter stitch project

For some other "tweed" options, check out Homestead Tweed and Arranmore Tweed. The latter is also available in a sport gauge here.

Figure 7 sks for an average adult sweater.

Price: $15.99
