    I knit a Cables & Lace Tunic in 8 days with a little over 8 skeins. Everything is good about the 100% wool. I can live with the twisting up as it wasn't that bad.
    After knitting the tunic, I ordered 10 more skeins to knit a cardigan for me!

      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.

          Comments about Tahki Yarns Donegal Tweed:

          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.

            The product was the color I wanted, was perfect for the 3 shawls I knitted in the same yarn. The hand and pattern definition was great. One of the shawls I knitted for a silent auction

            Service and delivery comments:

            My yarn always arrives packages in good condition, prompt. I have never had to use customer service as whatever I have ordered is so prompt and correct.

                Comments about Tahki Yarns Donegal Tweed:

                If you want a soft, cuddly yarn, this isn't it. As indicated above, this is a typical Donegal tweed and so wouldn't wear it next to the skin. However, it presents cables and other decorative stitches in great detail.

                    Comments about Tahki Yarns Donegal Tweed:

                    I am making a pullover sweater with a fair isle pattern on the yoke and bottom of sleeves from tahki stacy charles. It is called Yoke Pullover and is a free pattern. My grandmother is from Ireland so I love using a yarn from there. It is very easy to work although the pattern on the sweater is presenting me with a few challenges.
