A rich blend of Merino, Silk and Yak - this yarn has a beautiful sheen and gives wonderful stitch definition to every project.

Tara 4ply is named after the site of the High Kings of Ireland which is located close to the Townhouse Yarns dye studio, and the name suits this luxurious yarn to a tee.

Lush Yarn

Luxurious high quality blend & beautifully dyed, I now want them all!

Nancy O'Neill
Amazing purchase

I ordered Yarn in a colour called Embers it is the most beautiful colour. I was able to match it with Rowan's Kidsilk mohair in Liqueur and will be staring my Field sweater soon. The customer service here is second to none. In my area of the world Hamilton, Ontario yarn like this is hard to come by and it was a joy to work with this shop. Shipping was fast and no overly expensive I will be back.

Tara 4 ply

I Love the feel and the drape. The colours are lovely as the yak and silk take up the saturation differently. I am using it for the SoHo Square by Cadyjax knits (Jackie Rose). I chose a 4mm needle for a loose drapey soft as butter knit.

Beautiful yarn and such responsive and helpful staff!

Gorgeous Yarn!

I bought this yarn in the store on a recent visit to Dublin in the fabulous colorway Forest. I plan to make the Halligarth shawl with the yarn. I want to add that the staff, specifically Maureen, were all tremendously helpful and efficient. And the store is amazing!
