Telopea Tweed is a limited edition range of 4ply (fingering weight) yarns, initially hand dyed for release during the 2021 Bendigo Sheep and Wool Show. Returning for the 2021 Big Wool Show, this fun base is made of superwashed merino, scattered with delightful neps of coloured or neutral fibre flecks.
