Homestead & Homestead Tweed
100% Aran weight peruvian highland wool. This 2 ply construction yields subtle texture and a light weight fabric. Great yardage of 191 yds in a 100g hank. Wide palette of colors to choose from- plus many tweed shades too.

Cables and bobbles make for a intensely textured beauty.
Just one hank.
FREE pattern on Ravelry.

Falkland Aran

Falkland Aran is the softest wool you might ever feel!
