The interesting mix of materials in Sarah Tweed combines the best of all worlds: noble mulberry silk for a light sheen and softness, wool for elasticity, volume and good thermal properties. The tweed-like tone-in-tone appearance results from the addition of 10% bourette silk.
"Sarah Tweed" has a dry feel and the typical smell of bourette silk - a natural product. The yarn is the perfect starting material for those who find mulberry silk "too cold" because it is smooth and somewhat slippery. An unusual wide range of needle sizes works with Sarah Tweed, as the high percentage of wool also fills looser stitch patterns.
The simple yet elegant tee Moonstruck by Fibres Collection shows off the texture of Sarah Tweed. The top is mostly stockinette stitch with a column of reverse stockinette in the middle to add interest.
