When I bought a hand-knit sweater from a lady in Glencolumbecille, she said had no leftover yarn; however, she bought yarn from Studio Donegal in Kilcar. We went to the store to try to match the pure Aran wool and leather buttons. To my delight, we found a vast assortment of beautiful colors of yarn at very reasonable prices. While there, we went upstairs to watch the hand-weaver at work. He was most congenial and pleasantly answered all of our questions, as well as consented to allowing photographs. When I inquired at the desk about the buttons, Sandra Byrne introduced us to Tristan Donaghy, who made every effort to locate the size, even from outdated styles; he measured the button (36 line), so I could make further inquires on-line. He could not have been more accommodating. Customer service such as this gives Ireland its unparalleled reputation for hospitality. If you knit, I highly recommend you purchase Aran wool from Studio Donegal as a souvenir gift to yourself!
