Kilcarra Tweed – Pure New Wool


Reminiscent of the traditional homespun Donegal, Kilcarra Tweed is an authentic, colourful yarn with a contemporary twist. The Aran weight of this woollen yarn lends itself perfectly for Fair Isle and colour work, cabling and other textured stitches. This 100% pure new wool yarn is approximately a 12ply and beautiful to knit with. See the colour range here:

I also have three knitting kits available using Kilcarra Tweed. There is a mock cable beanie, mock cable scarf and family slippers. Check them out here:

I have many other yarns on offer too, so be sure to stop by and check them out.

Happy knitting and stay safe!

Knitting Kits Now Available!


My first lot of knitting kits are now available online – woo-hoo!

I currently have kits for beanies, slippers and a neck scarf, in a variety of yarns, and I will be adding more styles over the coming weeks and months.

Since the modern yarns don’t always fall into the old ply system, it can be confusing working out which pattern you can use with which yarn. I hope that by offering these kits, it will simplify the process for you. Each kit contains a printed pattern, along with the yarn required to knit one item. The packaging isn’t fancy but the cardboard box is recyclable and I think that’s more important than being pretty.

These kits can be posted worldwide and so there are no surprises when deciding if the kit is right for you, the listed price on my website includes postage to various locations around the world.

To see what kits are currently on offer, please visit the following link to search the knitting kits available, either by yarn, or by project type, and make sure you keep coming back to see what new styles become available:
