I love mini skeins and the subtle muted pastel colors on Tweedy, so I put together some mini skeins that could be used as a yarn tasting to try it out!

Each of the 5 skeins weighs 20 grams for a total of 100 gr (400m/437yds) 

The muted colors will pairs nicely with each other creating the subtlest colorwork, stripes, marls, color blocks. Just let your creativity flow!

These will look gorgeous in stripey socks, or as a beautiful accent detail on sweaters, cardigans or shawl.

Tweedy is spun with added tiny teeny small colored viscose fibres. Since Viscose doesn't take the dye, it result in kind of a naturally speckled yarn, with a somewhat rustic feeling. A classic Tweed yarn will add interest and spice up a bit your handmade knitted wardrobe. 

The wool at 27 micron can be soft enough to wear on the skin, altough if you're super sensitive a Merino Superwash is always the best choice.
