Tulla Tweed is a modern blend of fibres featuring merino wool & recycled cotton which self stripes when knits, and also features a tasteful tweed fleck! It is a chainette construction (the base yarn of Tulla Tweed is very fine - to create a thicker yarn this fine base is braided like an I-cord to create a casing with a hollow centre) - which creates garments that are light weight, less likely to pill, and exceedingly warm as heat is trapped inside the hollow core.
For the lightest, most elastic fabric, knit Tulla Tweed with larger diameter needles, to let the chainette yarn stretch in your stitches!
