MaggiKnits Irish Tweed Worsted Weight
Knit & Wear with pride as you carry on an old Irish tradition
A genuine Donegal should contain 100% wool, spun using traditional methods resulting in a homespun yarn of superior quality and whose flecks are permanently attached and will not fall out even after several years of wear.
Donegal Yarns, the original and genuine producer of Donegal Tweed yarns are influenced by the scenic beauty of the Irish landscape. Established over 100 years ago, surviving outbreaks of famine in the mid 1890's to today. A team of 21 spinners and dyers use skills passed down through many generations producing a unique yarn from raw wool to a finished multi coloured fleck yarn.
