Felted Tweed DK
"This is my "go to" yarn. Its versatile and holds up well over time with wear. The sweaters I have in this yarn are ones I reach for often. They have just the right amount of softness, weight, warmth and comfort. Its easy to knit with and comes in sooooooo many colors. Since I'm the type of person who buys the biggest box of crayola crayons, I appreciate the choices!"
