The Tweed Eve cardigan has the greatest Donegal tweed character of all our handknit wools.
This design embodies the personality of Donegal Aran in the bountiful blackberry stitch and strong wishbone cabling. Beyond that the Irish moss is soft to the eye and frames the more skillful stitches.
This wool tweed lends it’s origins to the Donegal weaver who first put the neps back into the wool while hand spinning it, previously these brightly coloured tough flecks were waste!
A little sustainability history and the waste-not, want-not ethos.
The model wears size M-L in the colour Paintshop.
The wool tweed fits a little looser than the merino or mohair-merino versions and is a little chunkier.
The five buttons are made in-house with a Magee of Donegal fine wool fabric.(
(Or request a dark olive wood button in your order notes)
The rib borders are firm and include a small rope cable accent, a trademark of many Edel designs for three decades.
The garment is strongly hand stitched in wool and the craftwomanship so skilled you may want to wear it reversed too.
(Worn with our Circle Merino Skirt and the 'Cuileann' headband both in 100% merino wool tweed)
