If you're like me, you'll be in awe of the set up at Studio Donegal. Every single step from sheep to shoulder takes place under one roof in the Gaeltacht village of Kilcar.

Watching people working at this craft is an art in itself, I met John, an employee of Studio Donegal who's been weaving happily all his life.

This family business is founded on tradition, inspired by place and is is so much more than a shop, its an authentic experience. Love love love.

Tristan mentioned looking for people to learn this craft Go visit Studio Donegal.

Treat yourself. Tweed would be the most awesome Christmas gift ever! Dear Santa.....
