Estelle Eco Tweed DK
If you've been searching for some tweedy, soft-but-rustic organic yarn, you've come to the right place! Eco Tweed DK is a wonderful yarn for use next to the skin – from sweaters and shawls to classic accessories.
Here's a little shop talk for you: because the GOTS classes all shorn animal fibres as “wool” (which is also consistent with Canadian Government Textile Labelling Standards), Eco Tweed DK is listed as "wool," but it’s actually 50% Wool, 25% Alpaca (which accounts for the luxurious softness of this yarn) and 25% Cellulosic Viscose (Lyocell.) A little-known fact is that many viscose fibres are toxic to the environment – the viscose in Eco Tweed DK is very different. Using the Lyocell process, this viscose is completely benign and free of any toxic chemicals... sounds like a win-win situation to us. Start the car!

Estelle Eco Tweed DK Silver, After 26 rows quite pleased with the stitch detail. Can definitely tell you are knitting with organic yarn and it reminds me of knitting with raw silk, very soft and fleecy.. Tweed effect is very subtle. This garment is intended to be my first attempt at a cardigan pattern of my own design.
