NOUGAT - delicious enough to eat - this is a tasty natural ecru shade - along with the tweedy flecks, it reminds me of nougat! Yum!
•A heart-warming, twisted sport weight yarn with tweed flecks!
"TWISTED" TWEED SPORT YARN - a stunning, cozy blend of 2 types of wool spun into a cool barber pole effect. Flecked throughout are brown, gold and plum neps that don't take the dye, resulting in a soul-satisfying tweed look.
•2-plies twisted together (one ply is superwash, one is not), each taking the dye slightly differently = a unique twisted look.
•Bounce, softness and warmth - we chose beautiful, soft merino wool for this yarn which has a vibrant bounce, so your project will hold its shape.
•43% superwash merino wool, 42% fine merino wool, 15% donegal.
•This base has such an earthy, homey, charming feel. It can be dressed down and worn in the most casual of cozy settings or dressed up for elegant occasions. It's got a certain heirloom, heritage, yet hip, modern vibe to it.
•Sport Weight - makes for a great yarn for a variety of projects. Sweaters, shawls, scarves, hats, mittens, blankets and more.
•Hand-wash and air dry for best long-term results.
•Yardage: 351 m/384 yd
•Weight: 3.5 oz (approx. 100 g)
•Recommended Knitting Needle Size: US 3-5

Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.
So lovely, the color and feel are both so soothing and soft soft soft!
I really love this yarn!!! The color, the feel all are excellent!!! Wish there were more cookies to choose from.
I love this yarn. The color is beautiful. So easy on the hands while knitting
I love this yarn. The color is beautiful. While knitting with Nougat it is so soft and does not hurt my fingers.
I was unsure as to purchasing this base because I didn’t know how the barber pole would look in person...the nougat colorway was a good starting point as the base is a creamy tone, so both strands look the same. The nips are exactly as described, not at all obtrusive, but enough to add interest and make the final project look like a tweed fabric. Unlike a couple other reviews, I am quite happy this base is not thicker. It seems thicker than other sport weights (because of the double twist and Marino wool). It is absolutely PERFECT for a medium weight sweater or, in my case, a more feminine version of the HENLEY style shirt that EVERYONE wore in the 90’s. It would be wonderful for a cardigan!....depending on needle/hook choice, you could really give it any level of warmth you wish! I’m now going to go order more skeins in other colors for the scarves I make the men in the family...VERY good way to give any guy a level of sophistication (whether he likes it or not).
The nought twisted sport is so nice. A great neutral yarn with specks of brown. I think it will work up beautifully.
Absolutely beautiful yarn! I LOVE the color!
Absolutely beautiful yarn. I LOVE the color!
Beautiful yarn and beautiful colors! I bought 1 skein and came back for 3 more to make a sweater.
This yarn is amazing! Beautiful and soft to work with. I am combining it with cash silk Life is a journey and San Diego. I can't wait to finish and wear this pretty scarf/wrap.
Love Tweed and everything about it. Pictures don't do it justice. I absolutely love this yarn and cannot wait to knit it up.
What can i say? Tweed is awesome! I too would have liked a little thicker yarn for tweed in general, but I have a pattern that will be perfect with lighter sport weight and will look so good with this.
Lovely soft feel but rustic looking yarn. Would have preferred thicker tweed yarn but I can just hold it double. Great neutral colour with a little something extra with the tweed flecks.
