About This Yarn
With all the same soft and gentle qualities of best-selling Snuggly DK, Snuggly Doodle has a playful nep running through it to create kids-wear with a tweedy effect. Choose from a fun palette of vintage-inspired shades and eye-popping brights for tweed with a modern twist.
What’s it like to work with?
A whole lot of fun in a standard double knitting tension, every ball of Snuggly Doodle wants to be squished and watching the tweedy pattern emerge keeps your work in progress interesting.
What is it best for?
Vintage style knits brought up to date for modern Snuggly babies and pre-schoolers look super cute in Snuggly Doodle.
