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.

Tara yarn

The yarn looks and feels lovely, I am hoping to use it very soon. The colour is wonderful

My favorite yarn !

Definitively my favorite yarn since I discovered it. Incredible colors, very soft touch. I like to knit it and wear it . First tried with midnatssol Camarose to knit a love note sweater. So much in love that i am knitting another one. and i bought 3 new balls for another project :-) I'll never get bored. Thank you to the team also who is always very helpful and friendly


Moste lush yarn you can only imagine. It feels like softest cloud. The colours are perfectly matched. All I can imagine there is a carding that will keep me cosy and happy nearly the whole yesra round. Definitely will go back for Tara again.
