DROPS Soft Tweed is, like its name implies, a super soft tweed yarn, made from a combination of merino wool, superfine alpaca and viscose. The yarn is constructed by carding these fibre's together with small felted “tweed buttons” that add speckles of colour to define the look of this yarn.

Rustic and elegant, this yarn is easy to knit and results in beautiful, even stitches. A great choice for textured patterns, slipovers, sweaters and jackets. Being a carded yarn means that DROPS Soft Tweed is lighter and breathes better than similar, combed yarns - while being specially suited for hand knitting.

Good Quality Yarn with a tweed fleck

This yarn is a mix of Alpaca and Merino wool, with a small amount of Viscose for softness

I Love this yarn so much I have bought it again in two other colours to knit more sweaters

It's a five star yarn that is so nice to knit with and knits up well.

It steam blocks with no ill effects and washes well on a 30° delicate wash

The only drawback is that being mostly wool, it can tear easily if pulled.

Disappointed

The colours are really beautiful, I bought 3 of them. So far I used only no. 18 for a sweater. The yarn broke too easily (e.g. tying a knot), it was not as sturdy as I expected. From my point of view, not the usual Drops quality.

Delightful texture

Absolutely love this yarn. It's is so soft and light but also lovely and warm. Easy to knit with and I love the Tweed effect.
