Blackstone Tweed

Yippie! Everyone here at Twisted is more excited than they should be about the newest arrival, Berroco’s fantabulous Blackstone Tweed. In fact, I am pretty convinced that this will be the yarn I will use in our upcoming Fall Knitalong, Kerrera (pattern will be arriving at Twisted soon!!!)

Tweed for the discerning knitter! This super soft yarn has all the rustic appeal of a classic tweed yarn but with a high dose of mohair and angora. With wear these garments will develop a soft and fuzzy halo. A joy to wear and a pleasure to knit.
