Tweed

Want the perfect yarn for making that classic walking coat for the rainy moors of Scotland? Or a cozy vest while you sit by the fire and spin? Have ends, little scraps of yarn, no matter the fiber, too precious to throw away? Need a charming but durable skirt? Tweed is the yarn that can make these all happen.
