With joy, we bring you a dozen shades of the worsted-weight yarn that has delighted knitters for half a century. Made in Ireland, in a historic mill, this is our palette of the shades we love the most: a mix of subtle neutrals and saturated color. It all goes together. It’s all wonderful.
Specs & Details
January 1 was the official rope drop for Karen Templer’s Fringe and Friends Knitalong. This year’s theme is log cabin. Read all about it over at Fringe Association.
Of course, being log cabin maniacs ourselves, we are ALL IN on this knitalong. When Karen announced her plans back in October, we began scheming. What would be a fantastic addition to the MDK Shop for people looking to knit up their very own (and perhaps their first) log cabin blanket?
The answer is one of our favorites. A yarn that has been around forever, seemingly, but still seems fresh and new: Tahki Donegal Tweed. We have always been crazy about this yarn, which is still made in a historic mill in County Donegal, Ireland. What is the mystery of its bright flecks and deep saturation?
This is rustic stuff, woolly and tweedy, and its spin has dimension and texture to it.
One thing we know for sure: Donegal Tweed will yield an heirloom blanket that will be a pleasure to knit and never lose its glow.
Choosing a palette was hard, but somebody had to do it, and that somebody was us. After much shade-card gazing and corresponding with our friend Stacy Charles (yes, Stacy Charles is a real person, and he is our friend), we are proud to present our beautiful selection of Tahki Donegal Tweed.
