You’re going to love Mayflower Easy Care Tweed if you already love Mayflowers classic Easy Care. These two yarn qualities have the exact same running length and tension, which means that you can use them for all the same patterns.

Easy Care Tweed distinguishes itself from Easy Care by having the most beautiful tweed flecks that create a beautiful play of colors. However, the yarn is primarily made from soft merino wool, so you get the same organic comfort that made Easy Care so popular.

The popular fiber blend in Easy Care Tweed is unrivaled when it comes to comfort. In fact, this yarn is almost even softer than Easy Care, which has already been praised for being a very soft and baby-friendly wool yarn.

The selection of colors in Easy Care Tweed was inspired by the colors you’re already familiar with from Easy Care. Mayflower has carefully selected some of the most gorgeous basic colors and combined them with interesting flecks that give the finished work a beautiful play of colors.

And you’ll become even fonder of Easy Care Tweed once you start knitting with it. The yarn has an airy and smooth texture that is easy to work evenly. As an added bonus, Easy Care Tweed is also machine washable, so the finished project will be easy to care for.

All the yarns from the Easy Care line are superwash-treated.

Beautiful yarn! Perfect for the sweater I'm planning to make. The photo colors are very true to life. Super soft and the tweed gives it a nice textured look!

Bought in grey & dark blue. Fantastic colors! The blue is a little darker than I expected, but I actually like it more!
