This deep blue pure wool is sophisticated and worldly wise. The acrylic viscose flecks of color add just enough pep to make you smile. For those with a conservative style, this blue meets that, but adds just enough color to add a personality of refinement. This would be a really cute capelet to be worn over a black coat. Just enough warmth across your shoulders and you scoot through the cold city streets, or that country walk.
Magnum Tweed is a great addition to the Magnum Wool family. The little flecks of color add enthusiasm to the otherwise single color, single ply, Peruvian Wool. Magnum Tweed is a single ply, nearly 100% Peruvian Highland wool. 5% is a acrylic/viscose blend which are the accent flecks. It is a super bulky weight of 2 stitches per inch! Makes wonderfully thick felted containers and kitty beds. Your projects will fly off the needles and you'll be done before you know it. This yarn continues to be very popular winter after winter.
Cascade's free patterns for Magnum are super bulky scarves, hats and cowls. But vests and jackets are also popular in this yarn. Since Magnum has NOT been treated to be washable, it is very warm, and allows your body to breath.
