Maggi’s Irish Tweeds
Maggie, as an Irish designer is very excited and proud of this addition to her yarns as it is a softer Tweed, truly carrying through the tradition of her Irish homeland heritage from Donegal, Ireland. In Maggie’s previous ready to wear Collection the Donegal yarn was a large part for over 20 years and then they were so rural their Tel number was Donegal 2!!

A genuine ‘Donegal’ should contain 100% wool, spun using the traditional spun method resulting in a homespun yarn of superior quality and whose flecks are permanently attached and shall not fall out even after several years of wear.
