Kathmandu Aran 

This lovely 85% wool, 10% silk, and 5% cashmere blend offers a classic donegal tweed. A perfect choice for a simple stockinette stitch sweater that needs a little interest in the fabric since the stitch isn't going to give you any! And yet with an interest that also doesn't distract if you want to work in some cables, as in the hat shown here!

REcommended knit at 4-5 sts/inch on US 7-9 needle, each 100 gm hand offers 208 yards. It took just 1 skein to knit this hat. I knit the sweater shown here over 10 years ago and wear it all the time! Yes, it is showing a few pills now, but for how often I wear it to bang around in over all these years, I consider that a great value!

Another tweed yarn that knits at the same gauge if you don't care about having silk and cashmere in the blend, is Homestead Aran.  Or, if you like the idea of a tweed, but 

want a finer gauge, check out Arranmore Light.
