The food world has its notion of "terroir." Close your eyes and you can pick up hints of a distinct geography, soil, water, air, you name it, in every sip of wine, every nibble of cheese.
I like to think that yarn, too, has terroir. Tahki's Donegal Tweed is still spun in the county for which it was named in Ireland, and this week I show what you'll find when you cast on and start knitting with it.
