About This Yarn
The richly-nepped look of popular wool tweeds in a soft merino blend that’s softer and lighter to wear. Named to honour the famous home of the Bronte sisters and a classic British fabric, even our Haworth Tweed shades are named to celebrate the people and places of our Yorkshire home, from Hepworth Slate to West Riding Red.
What’s it like to work with?
This woollen spun blend is gentle and beautifully plump making finished knits softer and lighter to wear than pure wool. The rich nep adds interest to simple stitches and sophistication to robust textures and colour-work.
What is it best for?
Warm outdoorsy knits with a Yorkshire spirit (look closely and discover a Yorkshire rose concealed in our fairisle cardigan). Excellent meterage makes stylish knits and larger projects more affordable than yarns with a similar tweedy look.
