Life in the Long Grass, DK Tweed: Shield
Life in the Long Grass is an artisan yarn and art studio in the countryside of Ireland. Its name represents the natural life of the wool they dye; wonderful sheep braving the elements and a way of life where taking the time to make something and enjoy the process is as important as the wool itself. Owner, Caroline, is crazy about texture and rustic living and her colorways are inspired by her Irish surroundings.
Tweed DK weight is superbly soft and strong with fabulous stitch definition. The texture of the tweed adds a rustic dimension to any colorway. Try it for hats, baby garments, cowls and sweaters.
