Portland Tweed Add to My Favorites
Classic Elite has the answer for those of us who love traditional tweeds but not the way they feel rubbing against our skin. "Portland Tweed" has the appeal and colorways of classic tweeds, but its careful blend of virgin wool, alpaca & rayon gives a non-traditional softness to your projects. Ideal for knitted & crocheted sweaters, shawls, scarves, hats, gloves, jackets & more, "Portland Tweed" is that ever-so versatile worsted weight for all your fall/winter wardrobe. Sensationally crafted in Italy of 50% virgin wool, 25% alpaca & 25% rayon.

Please Note: Yarnmarket is committed to carrying the colors of "Portland Tweed" featured in the book Made In Brooklyn as soon as they are available from Classic Elite. If you would like us to carry other colors of "Portland Tweed," please check out the Portland Tweed Yarndex page and let us know which specific shade(s) you'd like us to add for you.
