Cricket Colors: 006 black

Quite possibly our favorite yarn, Cricket is a single-ply authentic Donegal tweed yarn that knits up lighter than air! It is a versatile light DK to sport weight, depending on your preference, and is perfect for season-spanning sweaters. Cricket can be knit densely for creating colorwork that really pops, or you can knit it loosely for an ethereal lightweight quality for soft, next-to-the-skin wear. The 415 yard skein is ample, and many projects can be completed in a single skein. It is spun at the same mill in Donegal, Ireland where the Lucky Tweed is spun, and comes in a range of 19 rich colors, evoking the dramatic Irish landscape.

A traditional sign of good luck, a cricket is a symbol of abundance and vitality, and their cheerful song is a harbinger of good things to come. We couldn’t think of a more auspicious name for the little sister to our Aran weight yarn, Lucky Tweed. We think this Irish tweed yarn might become your next favorite.

I don't like single ply yarn, but this one, I absolutely LOVE. It is so easy to use and lovely to work with.
