A single-ply authentic Donegal tweed yarn that knits up lighter than air! It is a versatile light DK to sport weight, depending on your preference, and is perfect for light weight season-spanning sweaters. A traditional sign of good luck, a cricket is a symbol of abundance and vitality, and their cheerful song is a harbinger of good things to come. We couldn’t think of a more auspicious name for the little sister to our Aran weight yarn, Lucky Tweed. We think this Irish tweed yarn might become your next favorite.
While we have classified it as a sport weight, it is a highly gauge versatile yarn. It can be knit densely for creating colorwork that really pops, or you can knit it loosely for an ethereal lightweight quality for soft, next-to-the-skin wear. The 415 yard skein is ample, and many projects can be completed in a single skein. It is spun at the same mill in Donegal, Ireland where the Lucky Tweed is spun, and comes in a range of 19 rich colors, evoking the dramatic Irish landscape.
