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.

    Not evenly woven. Some of the yarn is very thing while some of it is very thick. Wouldn't expect that with this product.

      Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn Donegal Tweed:

      The yarn gives body to a garment. Although heavier than worsted, it is not too heavy to wear indoors. My only complaint is color. Often, when I buy yarn on line, I am surprised by the color that arrives. If that is an important consideration, buy in a store.

          Service and delivery were great. Ordering was easy- straightforward. Love the discount! I am making an oversized sweater. Like that look for layering. The yarn is beautiful. Anything you make from it will always be a "go-to" piece in your wardrobe.

            I used the yarn to knit a vest and l am very pleased with it. It is a bit coarse but it softens up after washing. I have ordered some more to knit another sweater.

              Using pattern from "Tweeds" book which calls for this yarn. The cables show up very well and the slub color combines well with main color. I used light teal and love it.

                I used this yarn to make 5 adult and 2 children's Cat Sweaters (Vogue Knitting Magazine 1986-reprinted several times). The colors look great together and the yarn is beautiful and easy to work with.

                  This is the second time I have used this yarn. Both have been for sweaters for my husband. He loves it. He says it keeps him warm. The only thing I didn't like is it is not machine washable. It is heavy when wet and hard to handle. Will this stop me using it again, NO.

                    This yarn is a classic that I have used many times over the years. It is so lovely that it makes me look more accomplished as a knitter than I actually am. Garments made with this yarn become heirlooms.
