Chirp, chirp! A traditional sign of good luck, a cricket is a symbol of abundance and vitality, and their cheerful song is a harbinger of good things to come. Kelbourne Woolens couldn’t think of a more auspicious name for the little sister to their Aran weight yarn, Lucky Tweed.

This 100% merino wool, single ply, woolen spun tweed has the perfect palette and tooth for Fair Isle and other colorwork patterns, but shows off texture beautifully, too. Gorgeous!
