This yarn was lovely to knit with - a beautiful raw kind of feeling and the finished garment looked beautiful. However, .... upon washing my opinion changed a lot. Although i handwashed it gently, i lay it flat in filtered light and it hardened somewhat. It was no longer soft, rather it had a crunchiness that spoiled it somewhat.
I'm using this yarn for my first knitting project a scarf and a hat. I had some trouble with this yarn to begin with b/c sometimes it seems like it's split. I accidentally increased my project. I figured it out and ultimately I LOVE this yarn. It's so soft. I have allergies to most animal hair so this is perfect for me. I love the color and can't wait to wear my gorgeous project!
I just made a shawl with a bottom ruffle using summer tweed ---- I got compliments galore. It has all the elements of a classic look -- texture, drape, color, etc. And everyone wants to knit one! Just wanted everyone to know the beauty of Summer Tweed. Thanks, Joan
