This yarn used to be called Kilcarra but the company changed its name to Donegal Yarns in 2008. This is the new yarn page for the former Kilcarra Aran Tweed.

This yarn is the original Aran weight knitting yarn (1.61nm). Yarn count: 620 Tex

It is suitable for both handknitting and 2 ½ gauge machine knitting. Using only the best wools it meets all the requirements of modern yarn, yet with its large flecks and having been spun in the traditional woollen spun method it has all the ingredients of the traditional homespun Donegal.

It is available in 50 grams balls and on 2kg Cones for the Irish market. It is also available on a 1kg cone for the international market, which probably contains some spinning oil. It may also be sold in 100 gram skeins of 175 yards and 200 gram skeins with 350 yds.
