This aran looks rustic but is soft and dreamy. The yarn takes the dye really well and works well as solids, semi-solids or speckles to compliment the neps. 

This yarn knits up into a lovely soft fabric with a nice drape, I made two swatches using 4mm and 5 mm, getting 18 sts over 10cm on the 4mm which gave a lovely soft but firm fabric. 5mm was a lot more drapey but still worked well, therefore you can play with these needle sizes to get the kind of fabric you want, 4.5mm probably being the best of both worlds.

Donegal Aran is a unique yarn with a nod to the original Irish Tweed woven cloth of the same name. Built on the idea of a neutral super wash merino background with bits of color woven into the plies, the end effect of our Donegal Aran will be a yarn with both tactile and visual texture.

15% Donegal Nep, a dye-resistant polyamide fiber, lends the dark neutral color to this 3-Ply yarn.

A totally new canvas to showcase your work!
