Aran Tweed is a lovely wool yarn, and perfect for winter knitting such a sweaters and cardigans knitted at large needles. We love the tweed effect with specs in different colors, as this creates a beautiful color play, and makes even simple knitting patterns look stunning.

Origin of the yarn:
Isager Aran Tweed is produced in Ireland for the Danish yarn brand Isager. Isager is a respected brand among knitters in Denmark and worldwide, due to their high quality and luxurious yarn.
The company was founded by Åse Lund Jensen, who contributed greatly to the art of knitting with her yarns and knit designs. Today Isager is owned by Marianne Isager and her daughter Helga Isager, who continue to inspire knitters through their knitting books.
Isager today produce around different 20 types of yarn, all of which are of high quality and lovely to work with. See more Isager Yarn here.
We recommend hand washing your Aran Tweed.
Wool does not require washing as often as other textiles, and it is therefore sustainable in daily use as it saves resources from washing. If your wool clothes need “freshing up” hanging it outside will often be sufficient.
