Irish production is at the heart of our business and we are delighted to introduce you to Olann, an Irish blended wool yarn made from 60% Irish Wool and 40% New Zealand wool.
Olann is quick to knit up and creates a soft but sturdy fabric. Due to being a plied yarn it creates air pockets when knitting, creating an extra layer of warmth and softness.
Olann is made from the wool of Irish roaming sheep, but blended with New Zealand fleece to give it more strength and softness.
Olann is blended and spun in Donegal by Donegal Yarns. From windy Donegal, Olann comes down to us to be finally naturally dyed in Co. Clare near the shores of Lough Derg.
