I used this yarn to knit a 6" stuffed animal modeled after a Brussels Griffin Dog. The color and weight were perfect for the doll. When trying to tighten some matress stitching I did, I tore the yarn, so it needed to be used more delicately. Once knit, it holds durably. I was very pleased with this yarn overall.

I purchased one ball of Felted Tweed to add to a bag of the same yarn I already had in my stash from 2007, in order to complete a sweater. I did not expect a matching dyelot and planned around that, but I was surprised at the very great difference in yarn quality. The current Felted Tweed from Rowan is inferior to the previous Rowan yarn of the same name-- in grist, depth of color and in the robustness of the quality of the component fibers--wool, alpaca and rayon--with the wool being the likeliest suspect. Clearly in the past 6 years they have changed mills, possibly for economic reasons. Nobody's fault but I would not use this yarn again. It's not nearly as much fun to knit with and the resulting limp and dullish sweaters are no longer the quality I got spoiled with.

    Love the color choices. I'm planning to make a Fair Isle vest. Have already made a Kaffe Fassett Fair Isle sweater using two strands at a time for a bulky weight.

        Comments about Rowan Felted Tweed:

        I bought the Clay color for an afghan. Its dark charcoal flecks against the neutral background provided the perfect leverage for the dark, moody blue/grays of Malabrigo Rastita Nomeolvides (a lot richer/darker than the photo on the website), which I used to alternate stripes with Rowan's Clay Felted Tweed. Felted Tweed is easy to work with and knits up nicely.

                Using this yarn as recommended for Jubilee, a large Kaffe throw, knits up and blocks beautifully. Love it so much am planning on purchasing again for a sweater and another throw.

                Service and delivery comments:

                I live in Canada. I used the cheapest shipping option from Webs and got dinged with a huge customs and duty fee at the door. Two days later I got an order from Knit Picks and no duty and customs fee plus the shipping fee had been way cheaper with same delivery time. Its all in how the company ships. I will not be using Webs again. While the selection is great it's just to expensive for shipping when I know it doesn't have to be.

                      This yarn is knitting up into a beautiful colorwork sweater! Have had no snags or knots, and the yarn slides along nicely on my metal needles. It could be considered bit fragile, though...pull too hard and the yarn will pull apart. I will definitely be buying this yarn again, I definitely recommend it!

                        Am using it toknit Anatolia from Rowan 54 a real challenge but the payoff is how gorgeous the outcome is. the DK weight wonderful for colorwork and the 'felt' and heathering gives the knitwear great dimensionality.
