Need to know: Donegal Irish Tweed yarns are produced on a cone before it is wound into balls. The cone is soaked with wax during production. This protects the yarn both during the spinning process and while knitting. 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.
