Sweet Dreams... how can you be in doubt? Those dreams are of course about yarn!
Tweed Dreams: This is our take on a solid alternative, a modern twist on the classic tweed yarn. Here, the traditional nubs, which create the beautiful nubbed surface, have been replaced by a beautiful print, creating a similar effect.
Tweed Dreams consists of 100% premium acrylic, which feels both soft and comfortable against the skin. Therefore, the yarn can be used for both children and adults, and it is easy to care for. Tweed Dreams is an especially obvious choice if you love the look of tweed but are either allergic to or do not want to use animal fibers. It is also 100% itch-proof and soft.
The tweed print is carefully matched to the base color of the yarn. It creates a nice and harmonious overall result. Tweed Dreams is stunning in a simple sweater - or a cabled poncho. If you use the yarn for accessories such as hats, neckties, scarves, etc., then you will achieve a bold, nubby retro look.
The yarn is OEKO-TEX® STANDARD 100 certified (no. 2276-367). Find more information about the certification at https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/

I used this yarn to crochet myself a winter cardigan last year and am so impressed with it!!! My skin is sensitive to rough textures, but I can wear my Tweed Dreams cardigan without long sleeves underneath. It survived an entire season of pretty regular wear and several washes without getting dull or pill-y. In fact, washing and drying made it a bit softer.
Tweed Dreams was easy to work with. I had very little splitting and no trouble frogging. I only wish it came in larger skeins so I didn't need to do so many color changes!!! I went through 19 skeins for a single cardi and got a little tired of weaving in the ends, but the finished result was worth it.
Incredibly soft and squishy, even for a Hobbii acrylic this one is SOFT. I unboxed my order while watching TV and found myself just squeezing a skein of this in my hand while zoning out to the show. I am waiting to order a bunch more skeins for an actual project before I use it, but I might just work up a small project with what I have now since I want to see how the tweed looks. I usually don't like tweed yarns for crochet because they look like they are covered in lint or pills, but this one has dots instead so I bet it will look more speckled and wont look like it rolled around on a laundry room floor.
Not only is this yarn the perfect weight, but it is absolutely beautiful and flows on the hook. It is smoother than some of the better-known brand's tweeds (in U.S.) that I used to use. A little goes a long way, and this guy went deceptively far. I used the color "misty blue" - a beautiful light blue color that is both versatile and a good standalone color. The material is soft, and doesn't feel like an acrylic, which makes it gold in my eyes.
Hobbii has the best acrylics I've ever come across. I'm not usually a fan of acrylic because most of them are poor quality, but hobbii actually has decent ones.
I've enjoyed knitting my first cardigan with tweed dreams. The yarn feels good and is stable, not prone to unraveling like cheaper acrylics. I paired it with a strand of alpaca blaze to give it some extra softness. I am very pleased with the result!
I absolutely LOVE this yarn. I bought 20 skeins to crochet a cardigan, and I haven't had an ounce of regret about the decision. I'm pretty sure it'll be soft enough to wear over a tank top without itchiness. I'm using Peacock (31), and the tweed adds a gorgeous level of depth to the stitches. I just wish it came in larger skeins so I didn't need to weave in so many ends.
