      I'm knitting a sweater. I had to rip out and start over because I couldn't get 4 STS per inch. Check your gauge.

        I bought this based on the description that said it was soft but I find it rough and scratchy. The yarn is for a gift and I'm disappointed that is is not going to be soft enough for what I had intended. Perhaps it will soften after it is washed but I'm not counting on it.

        very fun to knit with. It knits up so quickly and is kind to the hand as well. I made a sweater from the fall 2015 Vogue Knitting Magazine. It is a slightly heavier weight than regular worsted seems to be, but not at all heavy to wear. The colors are beautiful.

          So wonderful! The colors of this yarn are vibrant and slightly heathered/felted. knitting with this yarn is heaven! Uses size 7-9 needles and knits so comfortably in your hands. I HIGHLY recommend this yarn.

              Comments about 12.95 Felted Tweed Aran:

              I must agree with the other reviewer with regard to the color Cherry--it is NOTHING like the deep red in the picture, much more a rust. Even the flecks pictured in the yarn are different colors than what is shown.

              Combine the disappointing color with the awful feel and I felt I had a yarn I wouldn't even give to another knitter. Surprising let-down from a company like Rowan!

              Comments about 12.95 Felted Tweed Aran:

              I love donegal tweed yarns and I am always looking for that
              "perfect" one. This isn't it though it comes close. I wish they had a greater range of colors in the aran weight, I purchased cherry and its lovely but i really wanted a brick/blood red. The yarn is expertly spun, there are no snags and it does not come apart. Its VERY sturdy yarn. It will make a super warm winter sweater. I had purchased 3 skeins to make a simple cardigan for a 6 month old but I am not sure if they texture is good for a baby. I might buy more to knit an adult sweater....
              I think that if this yarn had 15-20% angora it would be the perfect donegal. Its rather expensive, the discount helps of course but its still hard for me to buy yarn that is this much for only 50g
