Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Chunky Tweed:

I enjoy the "Classic" acrylic/wool mixes from Universal, and when I saw this one was on sale, I had to try it in my favourite bedsocks pattern. Other than the little neps, which might be a problem rubbing in the sheets, I would use this yarn again in this pattern that is always good for gifts and bazaar items. Would be ideal for hats and mittens, etc.

    Nice and thick ... and washable. I like the tweedy look, although it was less nubby than I expected.

    Normally I run from acrylic

    Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Chunky Tweed:

    I wanted to make a sweater for my mom, who's in a nursing home, so I had to get something that the staff could wash. This yarn is a mix of wool and acrylic, so it's washable, and it doesn't really have that strong acrylic feeling on your fingers as you knit. It made a great version of Webs "Make Tracks" cardigan -- held the shape really well.

    Good yarn - not great

    By She Lace Knits

    from Chicago, IL

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Good price
    • Good yardage
    • Nice color

    Cons

    • Plied too loosely
    • Seems like it might pill

    Best Uses

    • Afghans throws
    • Washable items

    Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Chunky Tweed:

    This yarn was the perfect color for the edging on my throw, which was made in Encore Chunky. I don't think this yarn has the stability of Encore - too loosely plied - so sort of fluffy. I would not use it for clothing for myself, but might for a child since they would outgrow it pretty fast.

      Comments about Universal Yarn Classic Chunky Tweed:

      I made a couple of slouchy hats with this yarn. The tweedy colors were great.. and the yarn is soft against the skin. I am a bit of a yarn snob.... I loved this Encore & would buy it again.
