Yarn

Hobbii provided me with Tweed Delight and Peacock for the #NoShadesofGreyIG this spring. What’s better than crocheting with a rainbow of yarn? Using a fun tweed that is oh so soft and faux fur that adds a touch of sass!

Tweed Delight is a light worsted weight yarn that comes in a 50g skein or 109 yards / 100 meters, and in 30 colors! Yes, 30 colors to crochet a tweedy rainbow. I love the softness of this roving style yarn that comes from a make up of 85% wool, 10% acrylic and 5% viscose. At the time of this writing, Tweed Delight is on sale for $3.90 from the usual $8.

Peacock is a bulky weight yarn that is too soft and fuzzy in the best way. It’s made of 100% polyester and comes in a 100g skein of 71 yards / 65 meters. With 14 colors available, you’re sure to find the right touch of fluff for a fall or winter project. Can we say super warm and smooth hood, muff, ankle warmers or cowl? At the time of this writing, you can purchase Peacock on sale for $3.30 rather than the normal price of $6.60.
