This beautiful sweater is made not in traditional tweed but, rather, in a wool yarn with a lightly spun roving wrapped with two thin, solid strands and one thin, multi-colour strand. The quality of the 100 per cent wool will make this pullover a long-lasting favourite that you'll wear for years to come. It's a great sweater style for either a girl or a guy, and it comes in multiple sizes.
