Aran Hat and Mittens
Aran Tweed Knitting Wool from Kilcar in Donegal, Ireland. 200g skeins (Length = 320 m / 350 yards) Lilac-4812. The Hat uses 1 skein and the mittens use 1 skein. The Poncho uses 8 skeins.
You can buy online from COMMODUM art and design They also sell on eBay, just search for "Donegal yarn".
It is aran weight and 100% wool. It may seem a bit expensive, the conversion rate makes it about £10 (GBP) for 200g. But when you consider that the Sirdar Click cost me £3.25 for 50g, it is actually a very reasonable price. It is lovely to work with and gorgeous to wear.
If you don’t want to get this yarn, any aran weight will be suitable.
4.50mm hook, needle for sewing in ends.
