An authentic Donegal tweed, Lucky Tweed is made in Donegal, Ireland following their traditional standards of manufacture. Lucky Tweed is woolen spun: the fiber is pre-dyed, colors of Donegal nepps are blended into the dyed wool, the fiber is carded into a batt, and then spun keeping the fibers lightly jumbled, adding texture without bulk. The Donegal tweed nepps within the yarn contribute to its distinctive color and texture, creating a captivating effect. The depth of color is astounding, and we love this yarn for both garments and accessories.
After spinning, the two singles are twisted together into a 2-ply aran weight yarn. The 100-gram, 210 yard skeins are hefty, and when knit at the recommended aran gauge, each skein goes a long way. This allows for the creation of beautiful garments that are lightweight and easy to wear in a variety of climates.
