Eco Tweed DK is a wonderful tweed wool that's great for all kinds of projects – from sweaters and shawls, to classic accessories!
Because the GOTS classes all shorn animal fibres as “wool” it is classified as wool on the label, but it’s actually 50% Wool, 25% Alpaca (which accounts for the luxurious softness of this yarn) and 25% Cellulosic Viscose (Lyocell.) A little-known fact is that many viscose fibres are toxic to the environment – the viscose in Eco Tweed DK is very different! Using the Lyocell process, this viscose is completely benign and free of any toxic chemicals!
Each 100g skein has 350 meters in a blend of 75% wool and 25% Lyocell with a gauge of 22 stitches in 4 inches on US 6/4mm knitting needles.
