Tulla Tweed is a modern blend of fibers featuring merino wool & recycled cotton which self-stripes when knitted, and features a tasteful tweed fleck! It is a chainette construction which creates garments that are light weight, less likely to pill, and exceedingly warm as heat is trapped inside the hollow core. When designing with Tulla Tweed, Louisa applied the rule of working with chainette yarns using a larger size needle than you would for a traditionally-plied yarn to create the same gauge – this gives the yarn room to stretch. If you use the same needle size as a traditionally plied yarn the resulting fabric would be too dense. When substituting Tulla Tweed in another pattern it’s very important to swatch, especially if using it for a pattern that uses a more traditionally constructed worsted spun yarn.
