Arranmore Light is made in Ireland. It is spun in a factory that dates back to the Donegal tweed industry in the 19th century. This DK yarn, a blend of cashmere, silk and fine merino wool, is an authentic tweed available in a range of colours reminiscent of the Irish landscape, including the wild coastline.
On the technical side, Hiroko Fukatsu's Tsubaki is interesting; it knits from top to bottom without ever having to cut the thread.
