What first attracted us to Hamelton Tweed 1 was the colour palette. Every single tweedy colourway is so beautifully rich, yet contemporary and exciting - it's such a pleasure to work with! We are especially in love with the tweedy little neps which perfectly coordinate with the base colour.
The added bamboo viscose (10%) in this 90% wool blend works to make the yarn softer than conventional tweed wool and that much fluffier.
The satisfying twist gives knitted pieces a greater degree of elasticity - perfect for large knitted garments like jackets, coats, vests and men's sweaters.
Expect accessories like hats and scarves to keep you snuggly warm and last a long time. And we think it's a bargain!

BC Garn was founded in Denmark in the 90s by Bo Carstensen, son of a weaver and a carpet wool trader. So it's no wonder that their high-quality line up is all about colour!
Their core business has evolved from weaving yarns to the production of luxury organic and ecologically-conscious hand knitting yarns at great prices.
Many of BC Garn's yarns are certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) - the highest international standard for organic fibre production.
