Kenzie just may be the perfect tweed. New Zealand merino, angora and alpaca lend softness and body, nylon lends strength and silk noils contribute delicate texture and color accents. The smooth, round 3-ply yarn knits into a cohesive fabric that blooms when wet blocked. The angora haze is just fuzzy enough to lend a cozy feel, but not so fuzzy that it will obscure any stitch patterning. Now available in 30 colorways!

Note about yarn weight:
Kenzie looks and feels best knit anywhere in the range of DK to Worsted gauges. We chose worsted at 5sts/in, which is truly leaning more toward a light worsted, but that is not an option on Ravelry. Since the angora in the yarn blooms quite a bit once blocked, it is able to be knit at the worsted weight and fill in the space nicely. Do keep in mind, that it is versatile, and also creates a suitable fabric when knit at a tighter gauge, for example, a DK or about 6 sts/in, or at a looser gauge even down to 4 sts/in.

An effective way to determine if a yarn will suit your pattern/project is to do a test swatch at your desired gauge, block it however you plan on blocking your final piece, and see if you are happy with the fabric it creates.
