"Tweedy softness."

Pebble is the lace-weight tweed for people who need things soft rather than rustic. It says tweed, but feels cashmere. And if you've admired the look of other versions of Alexandra's Airplane Scarf but have troubles with mohair, this is the one for you!

It's the perfect airplane projectboth to knit and to wear en routeor, for us ferry commuters, perfect for the ferry!
