Comments about SMC Soft Tweed:

This yarn is not soft! I would rename it, maybe "thick-n-thin tweed" as the texture is bumpy. It's heavier than many worsteds, so the mittens on 6 and 8 needles were quite bulky and not flexible--okay, as they were for my granddaughter and don't need to be chic. If you don't expect it to be soft, it's fine.

    Comments about SMC Soft Tweed:

    The yarn is soft but will give a firm enough fabric for a simple jacket shape. I only have a seed stitch sample, but I like it. The color is lighter than I expected, but it really has an unexpected depth. I am very pleased all around.

    Service and delivery comments:

    As always delivery was fast!
