I used this tweed to make a hat. I love the look of the tweed, but the feel was pretty rough. I know some people really like rustic yarns, though, which is why I say it wasn't the yarn's fault. I also don't think the hat was the best project for it. I can see it being more successful for sweaters of scarves. The hat just doesn't seem elastic enough to fit someone's head well.

    Comments about Tahki Yarns Donegal Tweed:

    I make watch caps for men from this yarn and men seem to love them. The only negative is that I have to wash the caps to make them much softer as this is a rustic yarn. Nut it's worth it.

      I've loved this yarn for years. Colors are gorgeous. Cables look great in it. I particularly like making Aran style sweaters out of it. Can't think if anything negative to say about it.

            Making a Celtic Cable sweater. I love how this yarn knits up. The flecks of color really pop.

              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!

                I crocheted a man's hat with this yarn. It was a great yarn for this project. It looked great and seemed really sturdy.
