We've been waiting for a quality Donegal Tweed to complete our offerings and here it is...soft, vibrant, interesting and subtle...everything a tweed should offer.
Classic Donegal Tweed, spun and dyed according to the old tradition in Ireland. As a consequence of production methods variations in length and breaking strength may occur, this is characteristic of this original wool tweed.
This Lang Donegal Tweed is rather fine for a double knit weight and could certainly be used as a sport weight so be sure to swatch first and wash and block to get your correct pattern gauge.
