Irish Heather is a 100% natural wool yarn ( 60% fine irish wool, 40% new zealand wool). The yarns are made in Irland by Donegal Yarns. This yarn combines New Zealand fibres, meeting all the qualities expected from a natural modern yarn.The yarns are much harder than for example merino wool. But what our local experienced knitters say is that after each washing the garment becomes softer and softer. And the garments are usualy extreamly warm if they are made out from this yarn. The yarns are beautifuly dyed.. The yarn is quite thin, it is very suitable for the scarves, shawls, sweaters, accesories.
Hand wash max. 30 ° C / Good for felting
