Yes, if you are looking for over 5000kgs of wool in the grease, please contact us in March 2022. As a Co-op, we work together to sell the entire clip. Buying directly from us ensures we are working with our growers to collect quality Galway Wool that is well presented for our annual Wool Meitheal. Most importantly you are purchasing AUTHENTIC Galway Wool with unrivalled provenance.
Yes, in 2021 The Co-op was generously supported by Donegal yarns they purchased the entire clip and in November 2021 they are taking pre-orders for scoured wool and yarn. With less than 2000 registered purebred Galways in Ireland, it is important to pre-order to avoid disappointment.
Such was their enthusiasm to support our Co-op, Donegal Yarns purchased the entire clip in 2021. If you would like to knit, weave, felt or crochet with Galway Wool – you could contact them for a list of retailers and stockists.
I have heard that Galway Wool is strong wool, does this mean it cannot be used in knitwear and apparel?
Galway Wool is perfect for blending with soft yarns to bring beautiful structure and longevity to any garment . When you combine Galway Wool with softer wools in your knitwear or crochet, this ensures you are offering a soft-to-skin garment for your clients whilst also sharing a piece of very rare Irish Heritage.
I am interested in purchasing a product or garment made from authentic Irish Galway Wool , where can I purchase these clothing or lifestyle products ?
2021 was the first year that The Co-op took authentic Irish Galway Wool with registered pedigree from farm to yarn.
