The interesting mix of materials in Sarah Tweed combines the best of all worlds: noble mulberry silk for a light sheen and softness, wool for elasticity, volume and good thermal properties. The tweed-like tone-in-tone appearance results from the addition of 10% bourette silk. Sarah Tweed has a dry feel and the typical smell of bourette silk - a natural product. The yarn is the perfect starting material for those who find mulberry silk too cold. An unusual wide range of needle sizes works with Sarah Tweed, as the high percentage of wool also fills looser stitch patterns.
