THICKET is a textured 3ply Aran/chunky weight merino yarn with viscose nubs. Our tweed yarn nubs, in cream, tan, brown and black resist our dyes and stand in contrast to our National Parks colourways. The result is a wild, weedy, texture forward yarn.
The viscose nubs will work into your project as you knit so we encourage you to resist the urge to pick out loose ones until your project is finished, when it will be more clear which ones you may want to discard.
“Hand Knit, Hand Wash” is preferred with a mild detergent. Tweeds can be washed by machine on delicate cycle with like colours. Lie flat to dry. Gleaners and similar de-pilling products are not recommended for this yarn.

Fleece Artist was established in 1978, just next door to the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design to supply fellow textile artists with natural fibres. Over time their customers demanded better colours than were commercially available so we took to dyeing these ourselves.
Today, they are a small family run company dedicated to dyeing breed specific fibres such as Blue Face Leicester, fine Kid Mohair, Merino and other fuzzy beasts. Their dye artists are NSCAD grads with an eye for craft and colour. Their goal is to move beyond colour, to showcase the natural qualities of the yarn and thus enlivening your hand made projects.
