With colours influenced by the Irish landscape where owner Tara grew up and wonderful texture provided by the Donegal Nep this hand-painted DK weight yarn is a real treat.

The semi-solid shades are ideal for sweaters and cardigans and the multi-coloured skeins would work beautifully mixed in to a colourwork yoke. The tweed nep brings an extra dimension to your fabric, adding interest and texture to any shawl, wrap or scarf.

Knitting for a baby? We love the Norwegian Fir Cardigan for this extra special baby yarn.

Planning something for yourself? The Gambit Cardi is our team's top pick.

Tweed DK is exclusive to This is Knit. You won't find this IAY base anywhere else!

As this is a hand-dyed yarn please note that each batch will be unique and so please ensure you order enough to complete your project.

It is just yummy swishy beautiful yarm. The colorways are so vibrant

Knits like a dream

This yarn first caught my eye because of the wonderful colourway (Orlock). I really enjoy yarns where the colours variegate a lot without pooling, and this one delivers. It feels super soft during knitting and creates a really lovely fabric. I'm already considering my next purchase for a proper garment this time.

Love This Yarn

Squishy and the colours are just amazing. Have not put the project down since it hopped on to my needles last week. Recommend 100%.


So soft and squishy, and these colours!
I'm knitting the shawl with 'Dublin' - the real colourway is different than on the photo, it is more like light greys and blues, but I still love it (maybe even more).

Knits up beautifully

Feels gorgeous to work with
