We are feeling for the tweedy, flecked yarns and knits at the moment. There seems to be a lot about and not just for country weekend wear but modern cutting edge knits. In terms of yarn we particularly like Donegal Luxury Tweed Aran by Debbie Bliss, it comes in such great shades (see Pebble and Charcoal – you know us!!) and is a dream to knit. We have swatches in this yarn featured on a couple of Monday Moods next in this series.
We think the pieces featured here demonstrate a mix of modernity and tradition that can be achieved using tweedy yards. We really like the Aran Sweater in the large picture on the left.
Other great tweed yarns are Debbie Bliss’ Milano (another aran weight) and Winter Garden (chunky).
Rowan also do a great Felted Tweed Aran and Colourspun is also interesting.
Lastly we also love Vivacious, a DK yarn by Fyberspates (worked in stripes and colourblocking it’s fab).
