New: Irish Tweed with Merino and Mohair from Donegal, Ireland

Posted on

We have a new collection of utterly gorgeous Donegal Irish Tweed yarn in store.

Donegal Irish Tweed is a heavy 8ply yarn spun from 70% Merino and 30% Mohair. You need approximately 9 balls of Irish Tweed for an M-sized jumper.

I Wool Knit's Donegal yarns are spun by the authentic Donegal Yarns mill in Ireland. Tweed yarns were originally spun domestically in that part of Ireland and became a household name over a hundred years ago, when Donegal Tweed became widely used in woven fabrics and knitwear. It is a beautiful yarns with a great tradition.

Why not try Donegal Irish Tweed with one of our new knit kits that were specifically designed for this yarn?

I am particularly in love with this gorgeous cowl with cables.

Need to know: Donegal Irish Tweed is produced on a cone before it is wound into balls. The cone is soaked with wax during production. You need to wash your knitted item with a good amount of wool soap to appreciate the true quality and beauty of this yarn. Hand wash only.
