Donegal Tweed is THE Irish, sustainable traditional yarn par excellence.

It is typically monofilament spun with a high lanolin content, and riddled with the characteristic tweed inclusions that give each strand an unusual depth and complexity.

Garments made from Donegal Tweed are light, strong and durable.

Various fiber blends are used.

Care is taken to ensure that the majority of the fibers are domestic, so that Irish farmers

have a reliable source of income for your fleece here.
