We are starting 2022 by introducing a new yarn company for Tangled Yarn. Yarn Vibes specialise in traditional Irish yarns. We have the pleasure of adding two new yarns from Yarn Vibes, which we think you will love.
Before introducing the new yarns, let me tell you a little about how Yarn Vibes began and their philosophy. Joan Lucey is the founder of Yarn Vibes, based in County Cork, Ireland. They specialise in 100% Irish Yarn that is organic and produced sustainably in Ireland. Joan knew she wanted her yarns to be organic, ethically sourced as well as sustainable and at the same time supportive of the local producers and rural communities in Ireland.
Yarn Vibes Organic [100% Organic Irish Wool - 100g/150m]
Wanting to add a second yarn to the range, Joan settled on Cliffs of Moher, a classic, Irish hand-knitting wool with a modern twist. It is the perfect blend of a traditionally spun, quintessentially Irish yarn with an up to date colour palette. This lovely worsted weight yarn comes in a range of unique marls and heathered shades.
Cliffs of Moher [60% Irish Wool, 40% Virgin Wool - 100g/150m]
Cliffs of Moher is spun and dyed in Kilcar, Co. Donegal by Donegal Yarns. They have taken 60% pure Irish wool and blended it with 40% virgin Merino wool, which gives you a knitting yarn with a softer hand while preserving all the unique characteristics of traditional Irish wool.
