This woollen spun aran weight yarn draws its inspiration from the breathtaking scenery of Ireland’s Northern Headlands. Produced in a mill that traces its roots to the homespun tweed industry of 19th century County Donegal, we have upheld all the traditions of a tweed yarn while adding our own luxurious update. Blending cashmere and silk with a fine merino wool creates an authentic tweed yarn of the finest quality while our colour palette is reminiscent of the wild Irish coastlands. A yarn for the modern maker, developed through a deep love for the heritage and tradition of textiles.
