Rowan's "Summer Tweed" combines luxurious silk with durable cotton making it an excellent, all-seasons choice. This fiber combo gives terrific texture as you'd expect, but also take a look at the multi-hued nubs that add such lovely tonal color to all your worsted-weight projects resulting in a unique look & feel in your sweaters, tops, jackets & accessories.

I love the way the yarn looks when it's knit up! However, it's very stiff on the needles--no give whatsoever--which can slow down the knitting process. It also has a dry, papery feel, which some people may not care for. Still, the finished product is worth it, I think.

Beautiful tweed yarn. Yarn has no give on the needle so those who knit tightly will have to loosen their tension. The resulting fabric has a beautiful texture (especially in st-st). The yarn is not completely debris free; I experienced very small bits of vegetation caught in the stands (easily removed though).

Beautiful colors great feel but difficult to work with. It has no give and does have debis in it. The stiches did not slide easily. I crocheted with it and it seemed to get softer the more I handled the piece.
