Acadia is a 2-ply yarn with a rustic look and a soft hand. A subtle tweed effect created by the silk noil is combined with a heathered base and then overdyed.
This yarn is wonderful. It is soft and comes in a beautiful range of colours. I have knitted a cropped cardigan, for layering and a shawlette in the yarn, and it is one of the loveliest yarns I have ever knitted with.
