Short video about the yarn development and color selection.

55% Merino Wool, 25% Superfine Alpaca, 20% Donegal Tweed (viscose neps in acrylic web)

Hand wash, dry flat

“This yarn begins with alpaca and Merino fibers dyed two different colors and then blended together to make a subtly rich, lustrous heather. We chose neutral colored donegal tweed neps to incorporate into the 2-ply yarn. The high ratio of neps gives City Tweed a traditional appeal. The use of Merino and alpaca makes it soft and warm. The DK weight is gorgeous in two-color knitting.”
