Knit Picks' CITY TWEED is, IMHO, their first yarn that can compete with upscale tweeds like Debbie Bliss, Tahki and JoSharp (and others.)
The CITY TWEED price tag is competitive, but not cheap.
Sometimes you can get a DEBBIE BLISS tweed at WEBS for really competitive pricing cuz of that 25% discount they give you for orders over $120.
But I really like the fiber content of the new CITY TWEED!
Merino, alpaca and donegal. Seems like it will be a very 'body friendly' yarn. Soft, not scratchy.
Debbie Bliss Luxury Donegal Tweed is soft, too. But it's a very "busy" tweed.
I made a denim blue CPH for myself using this DB tweed.
Made another CPH for my DD using Tahki Donegal Tweed. It knit up nicely, but it's a scratchy yarn. I had to work hard to soften the fibers in the blocking phase, using UNICORN
I really like the classy, understated look of CITY TWEED.
I think it will knit beautifully with cables. At least the lighter colors will!
