Wool Cardigan Sweaters

A wool from Donegal Yarns

For this collaboration, we are pleased to offer you a 100% wool Donegal, from spinning Donegal Yarns9.

It is the only factory of the country offer this type of wool on an industrial scale!

This is a 100% merino matter, you already know well for its properties:

  • Breathable,
  • Insulating,
  • Thermoregulating (never too hot or too cold in it),
  • Anti-odor,
  • And its great sweetness!

To understand what allowed the appearance of Donegal Yarns, we must go back to the 1920s. Ireland has just been proclaimed independent and a state agency for industrial development is created: Gaelterra Eireann, could be translated as “Ireland”.

More locally, the Donegal already enjoys vintage sweaters in the carpet. In 1970, the Gaelterra decided to give a new impetus to the region, to reach a wider international scope. This is how the company is born.

Spinning is a small company with a family atmosphere. Some members are also the third generation of workers to work within Donegal Yarns, sons replace their fathers, and so on.

With all that, we understand better why Colm Sweeney, member of the board of the Ardara Heritage Center (tweed museum) said of this wool:

When you buy a Donegal sheet, this is not just a wool, it is part of Ireland you buy.

 

A 50-year-old motif

One day, in his usual search for archival photographs, Tarlach falls on a picture of two little boys of the island sitting on a wall wearing sweaters made of an intriguing pattern.

He digs and learns that this pattern is called “barcini” (I’m really not sure of the spelling, I’m not a Gaelic specialist: /), he translated it into “small packages”.

It can hardly be more authentic! Tarlach also tells us that he likes to wear his cardigans with a shirt, a bow tie or a tie.

How to choose your size ?

Sizing is very classical. Just take your usual size of tee-shirt, sweater, shirt…

If you are between two sizes on our cardigan with Six & Seven, take the larger one.

How to wear a Blue Donegal cardigan?

It’s as simple as hello! In the construction of your looks, consider it as a classic blue blazer: shirt, tee, jeans, flannel pants,… he will go with everything.

The motif will bring relief and texture, where the “mouchetage” easily brings a touch of originality.

Come on, we left for the examples.
