Nothing embodies the essence of the British Isles quite like tweed yarn. Erika Knight's Pure Tweed lives up to its name, offering pure tweed with genuine British charm and feel: no supplements, no fiber blending, just Pure Tweed.
Erika Knight Pure Tweed is a traditionally woollen-spun tweed yarn in Aran weight. Woollen spinning involves carding the fibers without combing them, which introduces plenty of air into the yarn, giving it a wonderfully airy and voluminous texture. Knitted pieces made from woolen-spun yarn are exceptionally durable and often last a lifetime. Erika Knight Pure Tweed has a soft yet sturdy feel, making it perfect for crafting long-lasting cardigans, hats, or blankets.
However, what truly sets this yarn apart is its beautiful and harmonious color palette in every shade. We've named these shades after places and castles along the famous River Tweed in Scotland.
The wool used in this yarn comes from sheep in Europe and New Zealand, and the yarn is spun in Ireland, in the county Donegal. As always with rustic carded yarns: be sure to put a washed swatch on the shelf! The wool really blossoms again after the first wash.
