We endeavor to display color as accurately as possible but, due to monitor variations, your monitor may display the yarns differently than they appear in real life. We also attempt to display the yarns in the bases listed as often as possible. However, we source most of our photographs from our vendors, and since every color is not listed in every base the color may be represented on a base different from the one you are purchasing. Please email or call us if you have ANY questions about the yarn base and color prior to purchase! Your happiness is our every desire!
Felted Tweed DK is a wonderful, tweedy yarn with a felted look. It is a beautiful blend of merino wool, alpaca and viscose rayon. The rustic colour palette makes this yarn perfect for Fair Isle stranded colour work, striping and other colour work.
It is a little bit rustic and a little refined. On the finer side of dk-weight, Felted Tweed blends merino wool for softness and spring, with alpaca and viscose for drape, luster and subtle stitch definition. Plus it blocks beautifully and seams like a dream.

I adore this yarn. I love that they have SO many colors first of all. I love the tweedy fiber too. I also think that dk weight is very versatile. Thank you for the inspiration of knitting Vibrant by Kaffe Fassett!
