Donegal Soft Merino Tweed is a blend of 100% Merino Wool


In our experience, this yarn is most suitable for use as a 4ply (fingering to sport weight, 3mm/US2 knitting needles). Depending on your knitting tension, it can be used as a Double Knit (light worsted, 4mm/US6 knitting needles) yarn. Using it as a Double Knit results in quite a loose stitch.
