Donegal Yarn's Superlative
I was asked to make hats for the mariners calling into our local port and you can imagine all the nationalities involved. On researching wools, I happened upon the Connemara website and am so delighted I did. The yarn is perfect for the purpose with colours which suit and enhance the hats, and the material is warm and hard-wearing and lends itself to lanolising to make it waterproof for the conditions which the mariners face. I am delighted with the wool and have sent some to Canada for my cousin to knit up and she's pleased too. Very happy indeed!
Afghans, hats, scarves
I've used this yarn for multiple projects and it works beautifully for any and every crochet stitch I use. I will continue to purchase this gorgeous yarn.
first jumper complete
I bought this wool on recommendation from a friend in Australia. I was most impressed. It was perfect for my jumper that I will wear with pride when I'm back in Australia. Beautiful colours. Great price. Really helpful advice!
knitting and felting
I knitted and just knit-felted with the yarn. It worked out very good! I really love all colours.
Great durable wool
I'm knitting up a sweater vest with this yarn. Smells great and I love that I was able to purchase yarn from Ireland at such a great price (better than comparable brands in America). Good stitch definition and so happy it came already wound into a ball. :)
needed more to finish after using original leftovers on another jumper, could carry on like this for ages!
Beautiful Irish yarn
I am a rug hooker and use wool yarn instead of wool strips. I have worked with a lot of yarn but I always come back to yours, it is perfect for this! Besides it comes from Ireland!
Beautiful coloured high quality wool
I really love this wool and my blanket wich I made from it looks so beatiful on my bed, i,m proud of it :)
