Buy Irish - knit Irish! Springwools is delighted to announce our new reduced price for Ireland's most famous and beloved handknitting yarns.
One of the only Irish-manufactured hand knitting yarns on the market, Donegal Yarns (Kilcarra) 4 Ply Tweed is 100% pure Irish merino wool with a unique multicoloured fleck, available in a breathtaking array of beautiful shades. A wonderful symbol of traditional Irish craftsmanship, this yarn has been produced in a historic mill in Kilcar, Donegal for over 100 years. This is the genuine Donegal. Only in Springwools can you buy this superior quality Irish knitting wool!
In our experience, this yarn is most suitable for use as a 4ply (fingering to sport weight, 3mm/US2 knitting needles). Depending on your knitting tension, it can be used as a Double Knit (light worsted, 4mm/US6 knitting needles) yarn. Using it as a Double Knit results in quite a loose stitch.
Cones are approximately 1kg in weight with a length of 3,800 metres or 4,120 yards per Kg
