Tweed is back in fashion (did it ever really leave?) and Donegal is the beautiful 100% wool tweed from Lang. Not scratchy at all, this gorgeous tweed yarn has an extra soft hand. The tweedy flecks are subtle and sophisticated, and the yarn itself is tightly spun with a slight thickness variation for textural interest. This is a yarn especially good for men's knitwear--men love it.
