Studio Donegal Soft Donegal

Studio Donegal Soft Donegal is a super soft, 100% merino wool tweed yarn. It’s made in Ireland in a little mill (we imported it directly) that both spins and weaves its own yarn. Soft and comfortable, Soft Donegal is great for making hats, mitts, scarves, sweaters, toys, legwarmers, blankets. It blooms beautifully when washed and is also great for colourwork. It’s also affordably priced at $18.97 per skein (tweeds tend to be more expensive than regular yarns, so not bad for a 100% merino tweed

FREE Truman Vest Pattern in Berroco Blackstone Tweed

Berroco just published this really cute Free Vest Pattern named Truman using Berroco Blackstone Tweed!  I’ve been working with Blacsktone Tweed this week and am happy to report that it is soft, easy to work with, and has a lot of stretch to it (for some reason most tweeds do).  

The above pattern, Truman, is the worsted weight, hooded version of the vest pattern Berroco published in their Blackstone Tweed book #298, named Dickens, which is made with Blackstone Tweed Chunky.
