A single-ply authentic Donegal tweed yarn that knits up lighter than air!
In a recent yarn tasting with the Unwind team, this Irish tweed was the runaway hit! Everyone on our team loved it. While Kelbourne classified it as a sport weight, everyone on our team was getting a DK to worsted gauge with this yarn.
Cricket is a versatile light worsted to sport weight, depending on your preference. This is light-weight yarn creating long-lasting sweaters!
It can be knit densely for structure. Or you can knit it loosely for an ethereal and next-to-the-skin-soft fabric. It blooms beautifully when blocked.
The 415 yard skein is ample, and many projects can be completed in a single skein.
It comes in a range of rich colors, evoking the dramatic Irish landscape.
A traditional sign of good luck, a cricket is a symbol of abundance and vitality. Their cheerful song is a harbinger of good things to come.
