Magee 1866 x Irish Wool
It's been a while in the making. We are excited to introduce Irish Wool into our SS21 collection.
At Magee 1866, we are part of a wider movement to develop and use Irish Wool in our textiles. We have been working with Donegal Yarns, a local yarn supplier just up the road in Kilcar on sourcing wool from Irish farms across the country.
Patrick Temple, CEO of Magee Weaving has also teamed up with sheep farmer James Lorinyenko to develop fine Irish Wool on the family farm at Rathforker, just outside Donegal Town and with fields overlooking the Atlantic.
The wool is then spun by Donegal Yarns and designed and woven into fabric at our Mill in Donegal Town.
This season, the Emma Coat is our first piece to incorporate Irish Wool. Available in two soft, misty shades of Donegal Tweed - blue and grey, The Emma, with its contemporary boyfriend style is the perfect piece to showcase this unique fabric.
We hope you’ll love it as much as we do.
Irish Wool isn’t here today and gone tomorrow, we’re in for the long haul and we’ll keep you posted as this movement evolves season after season.
