I used this tweed to make a hat. I love the look of the tweed, but the feel was pretty rough. I know some people really like rustic yarns, though, which is why I say it wasn't the yarn's fault. I also don't think the hat was the best project for it. I can see it being more successful for sweaters of scarves. The hat just doesn't seem elastic enough to fit someone's head well.

    Using pattern from "Tweeds" book which calls for this yarn. The cables show up very well and the slub color combines well with main color. I used light teal and love it.

        This is the second time I have used this yarn. Both have been for sweaters for my husband. He loves it. He says it keeps him warm. The only thing I didn't like is it is not machine washable. It is heavy when wet and hard to handle. Will this stop me using it again, NO.

          This yarn is a classic that I have used many times over the years. It is so lovely that it makes me look more accomplished as a knitter than I actually am. Garments made with this yarn become heirlooms.

          The yasrn is rather stiff but when you are done with your project, rinse in water with a little hair conditioner and it softens up beautifully/

            I make watch caps for men from this yarn and men seem to love them. The only negative is that I have to wash the caps to make them much softer as this is a rustic yarn. Nut it's worth it.

              I've loved this yarn for years. Colors are gorgeous. Cables look great in it. I particularly like making Aran style sweaters out of it. Can't think if anything negative to say about it.
