Isager Aran Tweed is an aran / chunky single ply yarn with a rugged structure. It is well suited for thick outdoor sweaters and also works really well used for textured home furnishings such as cushions and blankets. Worked together with either Silk Mohair or Alpaca 1 the yarn works really well in scarves and hats. Every knitter / crocheter is different, please swatch to give you an idea of your gauge and fabric texture.  

These are some of the gauge possibilities, worked on its own or with a fluffy yarn:

Aran Tweed:  5mm - 6mm needles = 14 sts / 20 rows
Aran Tweed + Alpaca 1: 5 mm - 6mm needles = 13 sts / 18 rows
Aran Tweed + Silk Mohair: 5.50 mm - 6.50mm needles = 13 sts / 16 rows
