Skein Queen ~ Tweedore

Loop is delighted to introduce our stunning new yarn from Skein Queen ~ Tweedore!

Tweedore is rustic-looking, but soft, with a lovely sheen and blackish neps. It’s a 4-ply, sock-weight base made from 85% superwash Bluefaced Leicester & 15% Donegal neps. We’re the only retailer to carry this gorgeous base yarn from Skein Queen and we have two exclusive colours: Rosebery and Angel!

Tweedore is a perfect choice for garments, gloves, hats, scarves or shawls. The BFL is hard wearing with a beautiful lustre.

We think Floozy by Libby Jonson would look great in Tweedore.

The stranded pattern colours could be done in Tweedore or a solid fingering 4-ply such as Koigu Premium Merino or Uncommon Thread Tough Sock, which is also a superwash BFL.

We’ve knit a Jaycee by Isabelle Kraemer in Drunk Bees! The golden colour is a semi-solid with the black neps throughout.
