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.

      Comments about Rowan Felted Tweed:

      I purchased a skein of this yarn to go with a bunch of other yarns in the same colorway. I intend to machine knit a vest, utilizing 6 or 8 yarns. This is of the right weight and color to blend with the rest. At this point, i can't comment on how well it knits up, as that is probably months away. However, I can say that the tweed effect and the hand of the yarn are exactly what I wanted.

                  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.
