Comments about Tahki Yarns Donegal Tweed:

Thank you webs for your wonderful service and for including this yarn in your 41st sale! To find a true Scottish tweed is next to impossible! This yarn is Not soft and smooth to knit with and if not laundered gently will felt like a son of a gun. But it will wear like iron. Once laundered it will soften and becomes a beautiful cohesive fabric. This is not a next to the skin type yarn. I am making a multi (7) color blocked jacket/cardigan. It knits quickly without splitting. I will wear it all winter long over shirts and tee shirts.. While it is a rustic type of yarn I expect it to be my go to sweater for working in the yard or running errands. Oh yes, it has lovely stitch definition and cables will pop! As I said I love this yarn. If I have any yarn left over I am going to make felted clogs or felted pot holders! Knit on!

    Sweaters for a lifetime: my old Tahki donegal tweed was knitted in 1977 and still gets admired. The royal blue new one this winter won rave reviews and my friends have me knitting donegal tweed for them: the quality shows and endures!

          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.

          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.

              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.
