Kate Irish Tweed Store is a part of Ring of Kerry Crafts - a family run business based in Killorglin, Ring of Kerry - the most beautiful part of Wild Atlantic Way.
All my creations are guaranteed handmade by myself and local crafters(knitwear).
The word “tweed” is an English variant of the Scottish word “Tweel” which refers to a rough unfinished hand woven fabric. The name became associated with the Tweed River which forms part of the boundary between England and Scotland. Nowadays the name became a general term for all carded “homespun” wool whether it was Scotch, Irish, Donegal, Cheviot or Harris Tweed. Our Irish Tweed uses Irish Wool with subdued colour effects (heather mixes) to continue this tradition.

IMPORTANT NOTICE;
All of my wool tweeds are made in Ireland from Irish wool; made to highest quality.
Big variety of fabric patterns has been achieved by my efforts to source them from a few family run woollen mills in Ireland.

About me:
I am self-taught craftswoman and designer, living in Killorglin, County Kerry, Ireland.
I`m registered with Design and Crafts Council of Ireland since 2015.
I'm a proud member of ``Original Kerry`` - network for craft makers based in County Kerry, Ireland. The aim of the organisation is to provide excellence in craft and our members are selected for their skills in craft and design.

Thank you for supporting Irish based, family run craft business.

On Etsy since 2015

Hi;
My name is Kate, I`m married with three children.
I am a self-taught craftswoman and designer, living in Killorglin, County Kerry, Ireland.
My inspiration is the culture of the Celts and the Irish past. I love the amazing , but a little forgotten natural wool fabric -tweed.
In order to support local Irish crafters , all my knitwear is made with cooperation with local knitters.
Please support creative mum.
Handmade by me for You to enjoy!
Kate

Frequently asked questions
PERSONALIZATION BOX

I DO NOT OFFER ANY PERSONALIZATION.
This is request for contact tel number only, it`s required to ensure prompt delivery.

How do I determine correct flat cap size?

1. Get a piece of string.
2. Put it around your forehead and head where you would wear the hat
3. Get and ruler and measure the string and there you go simple

"Only one available". Can I order more then 1?

I keep only 1 ready made item on most of my listings. If I have fabric in stock I can make more of course. Just ask.

How to soften wool garments?

Fill a basin with cold water and thoroughly soak the garment in it. Then drain the basin and gently press the water out (woolens should never be wrung). While it's still damp, apply a liberal amount of hair conditioner and work it through the fibers. Higher quality hair conditioners will work better , and make sure you're not using one of those 2-in-1 "shampoos and conditioners" mixes.
After working the conditioner in and leaving it for a half hour or an hour, then rinse it, then lay it out flat to dry and it should be noticeably softer.

How to contact me?

The ONLY WAY to contact me is message via Etsy Convo system. No Emails please, they won`t be answered.
