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:

    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.

      The yasrn is rather stiff but when you are done with your project, rinse in water with a little hair conditioner and it softens up beautifully/

        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.

                  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!
