Knit Picks City Tweed DK Yarn Review

By on April 5, 2016

20160105-City Tweed DK Yarn Review

Being from the Southern California desert, I primarily crochet with cotton and cotton blends because they work better for my warmer climate but I was so drawn to the depth of color and texture in City Tweed DK yarn that I couldn’t resist. I made a small order to try this yarn and since then I have already been back 3 more times for more City Tweed DK because I loved it so much!

First of all, City Tweed DK is an extraordinarily soft yarn. It is 55% Merino wool, 25% Superfine alpaca, and 20% Donegal tweed. This blend allows for softness, and warm, earthy, and beautiful colors. The color palette is primarily neutral due to the tweed, yet still comes in so many vibrant reds, greens, pinks, and yellows.  City Tweed comes in 26 amazing colors and each 50 gram ball has 123 yards. It is a beautifully textured 2-ply yarn and paired with the tweed neps, it produces a depth of color and texture that is incredible.

Here is my first project with City Tweed DK:

City Tweed Slouch by Em’s Corner

City Tweed Slouch 5 by Em's CornerFor this slouch, I used Snowshoe and paired it with two contrasting colors, Desert Sage and Chipmunk. I love the neutral cream color of Snowshoe and it really complements every other color in the City Tweed family. This is a very lovely yarn for hats and scarves for winter, but since it is a DK weight yarn, it also works well for Spring and Summer light shawls. I am searching Ravelry for my new project to use this lovely yarn. Have you tried it? Let me know what you think in the comments.

Happy Crocheting!
