just may be the perfect tweed yarn. New Zealand merino, angora and alpaca lend softness and body, nylon lends strength, and silk noils contribute delicate texture and color accents. The smooth, round, worsted weight yarn knits into a cohesive fabric that blooms when wet blocked. The angora haze is just fuzzy enough to lend a cozy feel, but not so fuzzy that it will obscure any stitch patterning. 50% New Zealand Merino Wool, 25% Nylon, 10% Angora, 10% Alpaca, 5% Silk Noils; 160 yards per 50 gram ball; approx. 20 sts = 4 inches on US 6 (4.00 mm) needles.
