Basic Information

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!

TENSION/GAUGE

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
