Erika knight pure tweed

We recently received a new yarn in store: Erika Knight Pure Tweed. Read on to find out more about the yarn and for some beautiful pattern suggestions!

About the yarn

Erika Knight Pure Tweed is a woollen spun yarn, this means the fibre is carded without being combed. This process offers a voluminous and airy finish to the yarn. Garments knit from woollen spun yarn tend to be hard-wearing and last a lifetime.

The colour range is complete with both neutrals as well as vivid, colourful tones. What sets this yarn apart is it’s combination of colourful and contrasting specks of un-blended colour, creating a dimensional and attractive fabric. These exciting colour blends will make for an intriguing knit, with the anticipation of what colour is coming next as the perfect motivation.

Erika Knight Pure Tweed’s fibre originates from sheep in Europe and New Zealand, and the yarn is spun in Ireland, in the county of Donegal. The nature of this 100% carded wool is a slightly more rustic-feeling hank. However, the yarn is sure to bloom and soften with washing and blocking. It is a great combination of soft but tough!

About the brand

Erika Knight is known for it’s efforts to support indigenous fibres, heritage mills, and traditional crafts. When this British-based brand was started in 2012, the goal was to support British manufacturing, use sustainable natural fibres, and combine traditional skills with modern innovation.
