The inspiration for this range of variegated yarns comes the natural landscape of this beautiful island ('inis' in Gaeilge).
The views from Ireland's peaks are breathtaking - made up of a myriad of shades and tones of every color. The pinks and purples of the heathers, the greens and yellows of the grasses and ferns, the deep blues of the mountain lakes and streams are all showcased in this collection. Not forgetting of course the reds, oranges and yellows of the Irish sunset!
Each of the shades in this range focus on one aspect of the landscape and this is reflected in the shade names.

All of the yarns in our Classic Collections are hand-dyed. Each of the colorways has been inspired by the environment.
In each collection of yarn, we have endeavored to capture the essence of the Irish countryside.
All our yarns are as close to their natural state as possible, so you may find some small bits of hedgerow in your yarn.
This is just a small piece of Ireland that has found it's way to you.
Just like the sheep this wool is sourced from, every hank is slightly different. Even wool dyed in the same color family will have stronger and lighter hues of the shade coming through.
They are truly all one of a kind!
The fleece is washed using a natural fermentation method used by generations of Irish yarn producers. This ensures that no harmful chemicals are used. All the washing is done by hand and the wool is dried in the shed on the farm.
Our yarns are supported by beautiful knitwear patterns designed exclusively for Yarn Vibes by Irish designers, including Ailbíona McLochlainn and Colin Burke.
