Telopea Tweed

4 ply / Fingering Weight - Merino Tweed Yarn

Are you looking for a yarn with a pop of textural interest? Blackwattle’s Telopea Tweed yarn is a limited edition range of 4ply (fingering weight) tweed wools. Hand dyed for release during the 2022 Handmade Canberra Christmas Market, remaining stock is now available from our farm shop and online.

Our specialty tweed style base is made of superwashed merino, scattered with delightful donegal neps of white fibre flecks throughout. Tweed yarn, or donegal tweed as some know it, offers a beautiful homespun feel with it’s rustic look and soft touch. It’s a fabulous choice for shawls, wraps, sweaters and scarves. And our Telopea Tweed yarns can easily be paired with our machine washable Mallee range or skeins of our standard Wattle range colourways!  

Telopea Tweed is available in 14 limited release semi-solid colourways, all hand dyed by our team in small batches, here on our farm.
