This handsome two tone brown tweed 100% wool yarn was reclaimed from a thrift store sweater. It is a two ply strand with specks of orange, green and purple.

This listing is for the 5 cakes shown in the first picture, totaling 550 yards/319grams. An additional 580 yards/341 grams is available in this listing: https://www.etsy.com/listing/98634878/brown-tweed-reclaimed-dk-weight-wool

The details:
550 yds. (cakes of: 250, 155, 61, 52, 35 yards)
319 gr. (cakes of 142, 90, 39, 29, 21 grams)
11 wpi DK weight
* the large cakes contain 1 or 2 knots
100% wool, recycled yarn
Care: hand wash in cold water/dry flat

As always, the sweater was first washed, then carefully deconstructed. The yarn was then skeined (using one of my Skein-it pvc adjustable niddy noddies, of course), soaked to remove the wrinkles, hung to dry, then wound into these center pull cakes.

I do my best to display colors as accurately as possible, but please be aware, your monitor may vary.

Like the majority of my yarns, this little beauty was rescued from a thrift store sweater- recycled and reborn.
All of my yarns reside in my pet free home.

If you'd like to take a peek at some of the projects I've made using my recycled yarns, visit me at Ravelry; I'm Shafer.
