Specs & Details
There’s a reason color master Kaffe Fassett has been working with Felted Tweed for decades: it’s a beautifully designed yarn. Lightweight and hard wearing, this blend of wool, alpaca, and viscose is soft enough for garments. It makes a smooth, elegant fabric with subtle texture.
Felted Tweed is such a classic yarn: an extraordinary range of colors, with fascinating tweedy flecks. The palette of subtle, delicious hues—from rich neutrals to painterly brights and pastels—makes Felted Tweed indispensable for colorwork knitting.
Take a look at Felted Tweed in action, in Kaffe Fassett’s designs for Field Guide No 13: Master Class and Field Guide No. 16: Painterly.
