"fuzzy, variegated woven"
Royal Tweed is neither fuzzy, variegated nor woven. It is extremely soft, basically a wrapped single with nubs of color to add the tweed effect wrapped in. Really nice to knit with.

I love this review from bluedarter - she is absolutely right! :)
The yarn looks great, knits up very nice, really warm, feather-light, super quality - not scratchy at all! It's not "bouncy", like Bingo or Merino big from Lana Grossa, even though it is also 100% merino wool - this has to be calculated in, when choosing a modell. Maybe something simple, to show off the beauty of the yarn... :) I definitely recommend it!
