Description

A tweedy version of our best-selling merino/nylon yarns. Subtle black, caramel and cream flecks (neps) have been spun into our usual MERNY blend to produce a textured, tweed-like yarn. When dyed, the viscose neps resist the dye and remain their original colour. When worked up into a project, the yarn produces a rustic look due to the speckles of neutral colours provided by the tweedy neps.

We have included nylon with the neps so that the yarn is as versatile and durable as our merino/nylon blends. It can be used for sweaters, scarves, shawls as well as more hard wearing items such as socks and gloves.


The main factor determining the quality of merino wool is its softness which depends upon the fineness of the fibres. We use extrafine merino (19.5 microns) which is some of the finest commercially available for hand dyers. This results in a supersoft yarn that feels gentle against the skin.
