Kenzie just may be the perfect tweed. New Zealand merino, angora and alpaca lend softness and body, nylon lends strength and silk noils contribute delicate texture and color accents.

Great yarn

I love this yarn. I am making a hat with it and it is a pleasure to work with. I love the subtle tweed look. I want to make a sweater out of it. My one complaint is the lack of color choices. I would love to see more color options and more lighter colors.

Very nice yarn

I made a cape with this yarn and loved it well enough to buy another sweater worth of it. It’s warm and soft with excellent yardage, blocks well too

Product Details

Kenzie just may be the perfect tweed. New Zealand merino, angora and alpaca lend softness and body, nylon lends strength and silk noils contribute delicate texture and color accents. The smooth, round 3-ply yarn knits into a cohesive fabric that blooms when wet blocked. The angora haze is just fuzzy enough to lend a cozy feel, but not so fuzzy that it will obscure any stitch patterning.

• 50% New Zealand Merino, 25% Nylon, 10% Angora, 10% Alpaca, 5% Silk Noils

• DK Weight

• 160 yards per 50 gram skein

• US 6-8 needles

• 4-5 mm needles • 5 sts per inch 

A note on the weight of this yarn from HiKoo:

Kenzie looks and feels best knit anywhere in the range of DK to Worsted gauges. We chose worsted at 5sts/in, which is truly leaning more toward a light worsted, but that is not an option on Ravelry. Since the angora in the yarn blooms quite a bit once blocked, it is able to be knit at the worsted weight and fill in the space nicely. Do keep in mind, that it is versatile, and also creates a suitable fabric when knit at a tighter gauge, for example, a DK or about 6 sts/in, or at a looser gauge even down to 4 sts/in.
