    Comments about Tahki Yarns Donegal Tweed:

    I have used this wool yarn many times for warm ponchos and jacket type sweaters.
    It is not a yarn that drapes or stretches. It knits up firmly and stays beautiful for years. Sometimes I accent the tweed slub with the addition of mohair in a few rows.

    Comments about Tahki Yarns Donegal Tweed:

    I made convertible mitts for my son in law. Using size 3 needles, the end result was a wonderful dense material that will keep his hands warm in the bitter cold.
    It knitted up to gauge, after soaking and blocking it softened up a bit. I would buy this yarn again.

        I went to Ireland last year and wanted to bring back yarn but didn't find what I wanted over there. Glad to find a stae side source for pure Irish wool yarn.

        I have used this yarn to knit hats for all of the men in my family this winter. The hats are warm and comfortable, and the texture of the yarn has given the hats a masculine look and feel.

        Comments about Tahki Yarns Donegal Tweed:

        I am using the Tahki Donegal Tweed to make a traditional Aran sweater for my son, it was his request for Christmas this year. I have used donegal tweed in the past and the cardigan I made has worn like iron. Donegal tweed is not the softest yarn out there, but if you like wool this is a good one. It's very easy to spit splice too.

        Love it! I knew what to expect with donegal tweed. This is not meant to be worn next to skin cause it is course. It knits quick and is so lovely. I did a sweater from Coco Knits that I wear as a jacket.

            I have now made two weft faced rugs with this yarn. It makes a perfect weight rug for heavy traffic and the tweed creates enough interest to not really need to add much in the way of design elements.
