      I really like this yarn and how it turns out looking. I like using tweed type yarns to give plush toys a more vintage look. This one works well but has a tendency to break which then you have to tie the yarn back together to continue. It especially breaks during seaming.

      I knitted a sweater with this yarn. It was not as soft as I expected, was difficult to get a steady gauge on it, and I think if you really messed with needle size and gauge there may be a gauge where this yarn 'works'. I was going for 4 st/inch, and did some fair isle with it on the sweater.
      On the other hand, after washing and blocking it came out quite soft and draped nicely, though I would not knit with this yarn again.

      Comments about Tahki Yarns Tara Tweed:

      Tara is a great tweedy yarn that shows great definition with cables. It rustic looking but soft against the skin. Has a drape if knitted slightly looser gauge. This yarn will not disapoint with the right project. Do not knit tight because the ply will break especially when hand sewing.

          I initially bought this yarn because it was on sale. However, when it arrived and I started knitting, I was more than pleased with it. It has a lovely handle to it and is very nice to knit with. I have a feeling I will be back for more.

          Your delivery service is excellent. Nuff said.

            Used for a pullover sweater. A little rough and scratchy so will need to wear turtleneck underneath.

              used this in one of their patterns-love working with it, love how it knits up-great stitch definition and super soft. I paid full price for the yarn and pattern and have yet to have a twinge of regret!

                  I'm using this in a sweater that needed a tweed of this gauge with four colors available here. This yarn is completely non-scratchy, good for a wool. It is very loosely plied or spun, making it weaker, and less bouncy or elastic than one might be used to before it is knitted.
