This yarn has a wonderful hand and the variation to the color is incredible. It's one of my new favorites... Wait! How many can I have? I think I'm over the limit. The skeins are quite large (278 yards) so I was able to make a nice scarf from just one skein.
The yarn label states that the gauge is 4.5 sts/inch, but that's not correct. It is just too loose at that gauge, plus the rep said it was a sport weight. So we are classifying Rustic Tweed yarn as a sport weight yarn.
I enjoyed knitting with it so much that I am now in search of a sweater pattern to make with it. Maybe theBimini by Dolce Handkints... or the On Your Toes Sweater by Green Mountain Spinnery. I may have to toss a coin to decide!
