Homestead and Homestead Tweed
This 100% wool from Plymouth features a rustic, more homespun look like the popular Eco Wool Bulky from Cascade. But at a slightly finer gauge.
Featuring 191 yards in each skein, it is recommended at 4-4.5 sts/inch (Eco Wool Bulky is good at 3.5 - 4). Offered in a lovely range of natural sheep colors as well as several nice dyed colors, it is a great value at $8.50/sk.
1 skein did this hat. Plymouth gave me the pattern to give out free with the yarn purchase. The poncho pattern below is written for Homestead and it takes 4 or 5 sks...depending on size. The pattern is available for sale at the store.
I also have introduced 5 of the Tweeds - they are a bit more per skein, but offer a different range of colors and that popular classic "fleck".
Price of the Regular: $8.99
Price of the Tweeds: $9.50
