An intense olive yellow with streaks of tweed acrylic viscose flecks of bright color. Personality is sophisticated and confident. Knit or crochet up quickly with US 15-17 or Hook P or Q. Great for serious hats and scarves, but perfect for a capelet. Make it extra large so you can layer it over your coat for that winter city or country walk. This color will just pop over black, grey, dark brown and even navy coats. Nearly all Peruvian wool, this super warm fiber. Wools that are unprocessed ( I mean it is not a super wash ) are super warm and thermal like.
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.
