Trend Alert: Tweedy Texture

A scattering of colorful leaves on the dry ground. A southbound flock of geese silhouetted against the pale sky. Cinnamon and sugar sprinkling the first batch of homemade holiday treats. These are just a few of the textures that come to mind when I picture how autumn looks and feels: colorful, cozy, and rustic. So it’s no wonder that I’m falling hard for this season’s gorgeous tweed yarns!

I’m sure you’ve seen our long-time favorites, Tatamy Tweed Worsted and DK, in the shop before now. Elfin TweedKettle Tweed, and Kenzie are also scrumptious- though these three have been discontinued to make room for the many new yarns arriving this fall!

But it’s those new tweed and textured yarns that I’ve been itching to share with you all today. These four absolutely gorgeous yarns arrived earlier this fall and I just can’t keep my hands off!


Tuscan Tweed by Berroco is an autumn dream- a smooth, soft worsted weight flecked with creamy tweed dots.Containing 65% wool, 25% rayon/viscose, 10% mohair and available in 7 rich, earthy hues, it’s ideal for everything from garments to accessories.


Roslyn by Cascade Yarns marries luxury to practicality. This light DK weight tweed is 65% wool, 35% silk – a refined blend that yields superior softness and drape for shawls and sweaters. Yet at a whopping 382 yards per ball, Roslyn goes the distance. 9 jeweltones and neutrals are just right for fall projects!


Melilla by Cascade Yarns offers charming tweedy texture and stunning gradient colorways! A worsted weight 45% silk/35%wool/20% nylon blend, Melilla’s slubby single ply structure is as soft and fluid as its long, blended shades. 9 colorways include brights, earth tones, and neutrals, so there’s a combination for everyone!


This one is cheating a tiny bit- Merino Textura by Plymouth Yarns is not a true tweed, but its crisply heathered colors and bumpy thick-and-thin texture have a similar effect in bringing to mind hay rides and outdoor festivals. 4 classic autumn hues will find a home in your wardrobe!

Sheri, Emily, and Susan have already snatched up a few of these delightful fall newcomers. Visit the shop or give us a call to experience them for yourself and see our projects! What would you make out of these irresistable autumn tweeds?
