Kilcar in Donegal is renown for their wool blends and gorgeous colours. Each season a new range of wool colours are developed – inspired from the countryside. Whether it be the blues and greys of the rocks, rusts and greens from the flora, purples and pinks from the heathers. Sand, beiges and blues from the stunning beaches.
This old age way of dying and blending is well sort after. The factory’s machinery is still in operation – the age old traditions of carding and combing and spinning.
The famous Donegal Tweed is also hand made here on 100 year old looms. The intricacy of the patterns are made by the hundreds of yarns hand fed and the shuttle zips across as the maker uses the pedals to produce the patterns.
Now for the finished products…….Simply stunning!!!
