Special XL Tweed

Now with added tweed effect, Special XL Tweed is ideal for beginner knitters and those who are looking for quick makes. The tweed effect comes from the addition of a viscose nepp. Colours are fun and energetic. Stylecraft's Special yarns are class leaders, arguably the best 100% premium acrylic yarn on the market with a huge number of colours to choose from. This yarn has a super soft handle, is naturally anti pilling and tough enough to handle being thrown in the washing machine. The Special range includes 4-ply, DK, Aran, Chunky, XL and Baby qualities in a fabulous range of colours to meet every knitter (and crocheters) needs.
