Undulating Twill Throw, available in a choice of seven colours with rolled fringes, is expertly designed and handwoven by Studio Donegal. Studio Donegal was established in the 1970s by Kevin and Wendy Donaghy in Kilcar, Co. Donegal on the site of the old Round Tower Mill, an area with a strong history of hand-weaving. Dating back to the 1700s textiles provided an important income for rural dwellers in cottage industries. Local farmers supplemented their income by hand weaving tweed from the rough homespun woollen yarn from the indigenous blackface sheep which had been spun by the local women. Today, Studio Donegal is a small woollen mill on the Wild Atlantic Way with its own carding, spinning, hand-weaving and garment making. The mill is now run by the Donaghy’s son Tristan. He employs 15 people and has stayed true to the core value of hand weaving all of Studio Donegal’s tweed.
