Blasta Yarn Kits Are Back

The yarn that you couldn’t get your on outside of the Celtic Knits Club is back. With the release of Celtic Knits Club on Teachable, we’ve added a limited number of yarn kits so you can experience the club with our exclusive Irish yarn.

Haven’t heard of Blasta before?

Then read on and find out why we love it so much:

Blasta – a custom spun yarn by Donegal Yarns.

Blasta is special.

While many yarns can make your cables pop this is the only yarn that is predominately composed of Irish fleece. Blasta is spun with 60% Irish fleece (with only the softest grade included) and 40% New Zealand fleece.

A lot of time is put into sorting, collecting and processing Irish fleece. What we end up with is a rusticly softer yarn than previously available.

It’s because of this process that the yarn is produced in limited quantities.

It’s crafted as a 2ply, DK weight yarn that blooms beautifully on blocking.

What Donegal Yarns are truly known for is infusing their yarns with an enviable depth in colour.

Blasta is no exception. From deep burgundy to the fern greens of the Irish countryside, Blasta encapsulates a unique view of Ireland in a yarn.

It’s no wonder we are proud of it!

But don’t take our word for it, here are a few of the responses on Ravelry:

This is the kind of yarn that really “sparks joy” for me!!

The yarn is perfection, and the extras are lovely.

The yarn is gorgeous and such a beautiful, deep color. Can’t wait to knit with it. 
 The colour & texture are just gorgeous.
