    Comments about SMC Soft Tweed:

    I am waiting to see if the washed and blocked cowl is soft. The yarn has a very odd texture. I can only say it feels like knitting with strings of a dirty dishrag. Not pleasant, but it is possible that it is coated with something for the purpose of the tweed flecks. Knits quickly (I'm a lace knitter, so used to lighter yarns) and the color is....dull. Hoping for a good ending.

    Comments about SMC Soft Tweed:

    This yarn is not soft! I would rename it, maybe "thick-n-thin tweed" as the texture is bumpy. It's heavier than many worsteds, so the mittens on 6 and 8 needles were quite bulky and not flexible--okay, as they were for my granddaughter and don't need to be chic. If you don't expect it to be soft, it's fine.

      Comments about SMC Soft Tweed:

      The yarn is soft but will give a firm enough fabric for a simple jacket shape. I only have a seed stitch sample, but I like it. The color is lighter than I expected, but it really has an unexpected depth. I am very pleased all around.

      As always delivery was fast!
