With the help of Donegal Yarns we’ve sourced a yarn that’s 60% Irish; its rustic but still comfortable to knit with and wear. It’s ideal for cables, especially if you are new to them as there is enough 'stick' to hold the stitches.

Several years ago there was a project called ‘Project Homegrown’ https://vimeo.com/67196603 , to try and improve the availability of Irish wool. In this project Donegal Yarns worked closely with the wool merchants on sourcing Irish wool. By working on a good selection from the various breeds with improved sorting and grading they have established a good wool that is comfortable to knit with and wear. The blend contains 60% Fine Irish that is blended with 40% New Zealand Lambswool.
