With bright colors and subtle tweedy neps, this surprisingly soft yarn brings an exuberant and folksy charm to our selection of tweeds. The Fine Highland fiber has a soft hand with plenty of drape, but retains the solid structure of wool, making this perfect for cabling. Each colorway is created by spinning together a lighter and darker tone of the same color, which works up into a surprisingly uniform fabric with wonderful depth of color. Neutral Donegal neps bring a distinct visual texture. Donegal is a series of viscose neps (think slubs or bits of lint) that are suspended in a very fine acrylic mesh which allows them to be spun alongside the longer wool. With such rich colors and that signature look of tweed, you have a vibrant and rustic yarn with plenty of charm.
A dark, multi-tonal alternative to flat black, this rich colorway features tones of soft black & steely blue, alongside the purple and brass accents provided by the tweedy neps.
The brilliant hues of Blue Bird are found naturally only in the wild’s most flamboyant inhabitants. Bright azure is given depth and only slightly restrained by a softer bright sky blue.
Frozen Pond is a muted grey blue wherein a darker blue-toned slate complements the subtle greys of pale ciel blue, mimicking the muted tones of frosty days.
As the skies of the darkest season provide nature’s clearest canvases, the blues of Winter Walk will bring a subtle and dramatic depth to any knits. Deep navy and a medium denim twist together for an umbral blue the color of winter twilight, with light flecks of tweed like stars winking into the night.
Lake Shore is a littoral teal green created by the pale sea green of watery horizons blending into the darker teal of deep shoreward pools. Like most teals, it can appear more green when paired with greens such as Salsa Verde or more blue when paired with blues such as Blue Bird or Frozen Pond.
The aptly name Salsa Verde gives the overall effect of the distinctive yellow green of that tomatillo-based condiment, created from the combination of a pale olive green and a darker olive drab.
Pumpkin Pie is more in keeping with the color of the autumnal gourd *before* it’s transformed into the delightful seasonal dessert that it is named for. A dark burnt orange joins a lighter tangerine to make a deep pumpkin color ready for carving.
Anyone familiar with the full spectrum of the pome panoply will find delight in the carmine colors of Candy Apple. The burgundy of a dark Red Delicious twines with the bright Gala crimson, making a lovely brick red overall.
The sweet tones of Jam are muted magenta and soft strawberry pink. The result is a soft and charming purple with overtones of pink, without the saccharine saturation of overwhelming puckering pinks.
Caramel is the rich yellow brown of that chromatically warm confection, achieved by combining an orange-undertoned copper with the light brown-gold.
As the name suggests, Coffee Bean pulls from the earthy range of that favorite beverage, twisting the dark brown of a medium roast bean with the lighter umber of a milk-fortified mug of steaming coffee.
Powdery grey shines with a faint lavender-blue undertone. With regal blips of plum and turmeric neps, this soft colorway would make the loveliest base color for your next pullover or cardigan.
Creamy ivory sets the tone for this earthy colorway. With jewel toned tweedy neps dispersed throughout, you'll find yourself inundated with compliments when wearing this rich and light-hued fiber.
