Classic Elite Yarns Majestic Tweed

Soft and textural, Classic Elite's Majestic Tweed is truly an impressive yarn. A cushiony blend of wool, angora, silk and nylon twist into two loose plies that work up into an opulent fabric with a little angora fuzz. Majestic Tweed's saturated colors are complemented by tiny, light colored flecks of raw silk. Made in Argentina.

      Lovely yarn

      I made a hat for a son's friend. At first i didn't think it looked very 'tweedy' but as it knitted up, the tweed was more obvious.

      Yikes!!!!

      Be very careful when using this yarn. It has at least 2 splices in every skein and they were very loose.

                        My throw blanket is turning out awesome...using charcoal as the border and blue for the middle. Color combination is beautiful. Love the nubby effect of the blanket and the texture is just great. Cant wait to finish and wrap it around me !!

                        I am knitting a vest for my husband. The yarn is both soft and strong, which makes it one of my preferred yarns. The tweed gives the vest a wonderful textured appearance. I couldn't be more pleased.

                          I saw this on sale and thought it would make a nice hat for my daughter. It came out very well, although some of the cable detail is a little lost in the tweed.

                                  I made a scarf from the pattern book. While knitting there was a little stiffness to the yarn. The shedding was minimal. My scarf is very soft. It's drapey but not overly so. I would make a sweater but would have to find a pattern that is just right for the yarn.

                                    I crocheted a beret type hat that I gave away as a gift. It was hard for me to give it away. I'll have to make myself one.
