Introduce texture to your handknits in a whole new way with Wool of the Andes Tweed! Available in a rich and elegant color palette, Wool of the Andes Tweed is ideal for Aran sweaters, cables, and braids.

Our classic worsted weight wool combines with earthy-colored flecks of Donegal tweed, which are viscose neps (think slubs or bits of lint) that are suspended in a very fine acrylic mesh which allows them to be spun alongside the wool fibers. In the yarn, you won’t be able to see the acrylic web at all, and the neps will appear either on the surface of the yarn or spun inside the yarn strand.

The tweedy Donegal neps add a rustic and traditional appeal to everything from sweaters and outerwear to hats and mitts. By combining durability and excellent stitch definition with small flecks of neps, you will instantly transform any project into a true classic.
