Cheviot is often the wool that is used in Scottish tweeds. It's a dense, lofty and hardy wool from a hill breed of sheep used to living in windy conditions. It is very much under rated in the hand knitting world but is suitable for knitting, well anything!
Compared to merino, the most widely dyed wool in the hand dyeing industry, it isn't as soft but isn't too coarse either. If you're a little more on the skin sensitive side, I'd recommend this superwash treated yarn for outerwear. Cheviot has a micron count of 27-33.
