Summer Tweed

Summer Tweed from Austermann has a special glimmer and tons of texture. Silky, solid-colored viscose wraps tightly around a core of cotton with pops of multicolor slubs peeking through. Summer Tweed knits up at a worsted gauge into a light, open fabric with tons of drape. Imagine Summer Tweed in shimmery tunics and tops for summer evenings. Made in Italy.

Comments about Austermann Summer Tweed:

I bought this for a specific pattern because I liked the look of the model. This yarn has a crunchy texture that doesn't promise comfort, but it looks marvelous! Pleasant to knit as long as I remember to keep attention on tension!
