Its a 2/6 donegal tweed from a closed mill. I bought it at webs.
But I have to post a disclaimer - I am not bad mouthing webs. This is my first order from them -and I am dissapointed. But I dont think webs has anything to do with it.
In any case beware buying close out yarn. I have since discovered that this yarn is also brittle. It breaks quite easily. In fact I can break it without effort just using my hands.
Felted it would probably be strong enough. But I am disgusted and have given up on this yarn entirely!!!
Actually I am pretty heart broken. I dont have much money to spend on yarn - thats why I wanted a good bargin. But now I can not buy more for a while. Its like saving money for a vaccation and your flight is canceled and the airline wont refund your ticket.
If anyone would like to have this yarn just to see what you can do with it I will send it all to you for free. Just pay shipping.
