Nestled between the hills of South West Donegal and the Atlantic Ocean, Donegal Yarns Wool spinning mill can trace its origin back to the centuries old tradition of tweed effect yarns domestically spun in Donegal. It is the only wool carding mill operating on a commercial basis in Ireland. These yarns burst onto world markets over a hundred years ago and gave their name to the internationally famous ‘Donegal Tweed’ products. The Company operates a vertical production process from raw wool to a finished multi-coloured fleck yarn targeted at the weaving, knitting and craft industry.
With the support of Údarás na Gaeltachta the company have renewed and updated their electrical system, complete with new windows and doors as well as receiving assistance in improving the company’s profile and social media presence.
