This color chart presents the full up-to-date color range of the yarn SUPER TWEED.
SUPER TWEED is one of Fonty's signature yarns. Composed of 95% fine wool, which provides softness and elasticity, and 5% Mohair fibre which gives a shiny appearance and bulk, SUPER TWEED is a carded yarn with an extraordinary feel.
In the world family of tweeds (yarns with small deliberate random color spots) SUPER TWEED is unique on the market, as it is the only one to be made of 100% natural fibres. Indeed, its colored buttons are exclusively made of dyed natural wool, unlike the others. The main fibre is dyed in flock, before being transformed into yarn, and the buttons are added to an already pigmented material. This raw material dyeing process rather than yarn pigmentation also makes it possible to create 3 subtly degraded colors for each dyeing pass, by diluting the dyed flock with unbleached flock. This deliberate choice of a more restrictive and complex manufacturing method makes it possible to reduce dyeing operations, and therefore their ecological impact, while guaranteeing consistent color combinations.
SUPER TWEED is a medium twist, mid-weight, 2-ply yarn knitted on # 5 needles. Ideal for Irish sweaters, ribs, and winter accessories, SUPER TWEED is versatile, and suitable for any type of work. This comfortable and classic yarn is machine washable (30 to 40°) without spinning. Avoid machine spinning. Flat drying is recommended.
