Modern Wrapper Project - Fine Tweed/KSH Version
For this version of our Modern Wrapper, we paired a strand of Rowan's Fine Tweed with perennial favorite Kidsilk Haze. The fingering-weight tweed is transformed—what is normally a woolly rustic finished fabric softens under a gentle cloud of mohair and silk, and enriches the complexity of the tweedy colors. It's aces!
