"Deluxe Worsted Tweed" from Universal Yarn is another classic plied, 100% wool tweed fiber. This yarn has colors, some contrasting and others subtle, twisted together for a tweedy effect which works well for throws, afghans, blankets, sweaters, cardigans, hats and scarves.

Today I started to crochet an afghan (with 2 pillows to match) from this soft, easy-to-work-up 100% wool Deluxe Worsted Tweed. I LOVE the feel of this wool, as I really like working with ANY wool yarn. Bought 10 skeins --100 gr/220 yd-- on sale at Discontinued Name Brand Yarn for ONLY $3.00/skein-- bargain indeed! Will finish for nephew's August wedding.

Finished (7/6/09) crocheting 2nd afghan using 100% WOOL Deluxe Worsted Tweed. This in colors: 01 PEACH PUFF & 03 NECTAR TWIRL (5 skeins total) with mohair trim in 2 sections--LOVELY. YARN is SOFT & EASY to "WORK UP," -- I like it, but it could have a bit more twist. Larger skeins 220 yd/100 gr on sale at favorite website, DBNY. HIGHLY RECOMMEND at low price for excellent quality.
