Blasta yarn is the result of Project Homegrown to try and improve the availability of Irish wool. In this project, Donegal Yarns worked closely with wool merchants on sourcing Irish wool. By working on a good selection from the various breeds with improved sorting and grading, they have established an excellent yarn that is comfortable to knit with and wear. The blend contains 60% Fine Irish with 40% New Zealand Lambswool.

But, what’s it like to work with?
Blasta is a yarn with a texture like no other. Its stitches stand to attention and are just sticky enough to make frogging cables *almost* pain-free. It’s easy to work so your hands don’t get tired, and the resulting finished pieces are long-wearing with little pilling.
