My Brother and SIL took a trip to Ireland last summer. I asked (or I may have begged) for them to bring some wool back for me.
They found this hank in a cute shop in County Kerry. It's a little more than 6.5 ounces of wool from Kilcar in Donegal, Ireland.
The site says 100% wool, so we don't know for certain what type of wool it is. But following the information provided on the shop's website, the yarn is from Donegal Yarns spun in the Donegal Tweed style. :-)
As an American for more than a few generations, I have ancestors from many places with large portions originating in Ireland. So whether it's technically correct or not, I have always identified as being "mostly Irish." So to have an actual Irish yarn spun in a traditional Irish method is pretty special for me.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday.
