We take our job as yarn scouts very seriously here. We love finding yarns that may not be as familiar as others and share with you why we fell in love with them. This yarn from the Donegal Wool Spinning Company in Ireland is a case in point.
Whilst this 2 ply woollen spun yarn is described as a DK it is so bouncy that we have been able to use it for patterns that call for aran and worsted weights. in a range of beautiful rustic tweed and tonal shades it is particularly good for cabled jumpers and cardigans or because it blooms and softens so well after washing for a colour work yoke such as those designed by Jennifer Steingass.
