Lovely! 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
Used this for making a Morgan flat cap. Lovely feel and has a nice drape but not too much! after blocking. Can be a bit difficult to frog - the fuzzy nature of the yarn makes it catch on itself and if you tug too hard it can break. Also means it is a bit prickly - not soft enough for next-to-skin projects except mittens. Very blurry stitch definition which was great for the project but difficult for swatching! All in all, would totally use this yarn again for the right project.

favorite tweed 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
One of my favorite tweeds. Very fine yarn with light flecks of tweedy bits, a very find hand with lovely fluid fabric. Wears well with minimal pilling, one yarn I consider to be a workhorse of a yarn. Your sweater will last years and not show it's age. Great yardage, colors and pattern support.

Classic, dependable yarn! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love the heathery, tweedy look and feel of this yarn. it's super easy to knit with - has a fair amount of stretch. My only complaint is that it takes a while to knit - ha!

Rowan Felted Tweed the best 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I've used quite a few yarns for sweaters, but I think this is just about the best. Feels great while knitting, doesn't split,lovely to wear. I've used it for a multi-colored hat, a sweater, two vests. Will use it again.

Disappointed 1 out of 5 stars (1 out of 5)
I absolutely love the colors, but it is so scratchy that I can't use it. Purchased it for a sweater project, but I can't even get through the swatch since it hurts my fingers so much. If you do not have any problems with this type of yarn, then the colors and look would be great.
