Yarn Review - Debbie Bliss Donegal Chunky Tweed

Yarn Review - Debbie Bliss Donegal Chunky Tweed
My mum had 100g of this surplus from one of her projects and gave me the spare hank. It's 100% wool and very rustic in texture and appearance. This shade is in pale earthy colours with fluffy flecks of blue and white. My sister has a scarf made in this but I don't think I could tolerate this around my neck as it is a little tickly! I just had enough to make a pair of these fingerless gloves which are comfortable and not too itchy on my arms. It is definitely very chunky and warm. Recommended knitting needle size is 7 mm ( 10.5 US). It's made in Kilcar, Ireland and I believe it comes in other colour choices. I like it very much and I'm looking out for some more...
