Schachenmayr Ego Tweed is a soft, cozy blend of wool, acrylic, and viscose. This machine washable, chunky yarn not only has a great tweed effect, it also subtly stripes. Schachenmayr Eco Tweed is perfect for garments and accessories. Made in Germany.
I love this! I am knitting Cherie Amour from Knitty.com with this yarn, and it is knitting up beautifully. It has a very soft hand, and feels great next to skin. I have had no problems with splitting or breaking. The length of the color repeats is very long, making for gradual color changes rather than defined stripes. I would love to buy more for a shrug after this.
