Available in 19 shades of Sport and 20 shades of Worsted weight, the inspiration for this range comes from the stunning beauty of the Irish landscape - in particular the Irish Vales, with their grassy slopes, winding streams and quiet lakes. They are full of color, life and beauty.
The natural, yet vibrant colors of the landscape are encapsulated in this range. The heathers, ferns and berries of the valleys are all reflected in every shade of yarn in this collection

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.
