Irish Artisan Yarn was launched by Tara Osborough who is an award winning textile designer with many years experience in the industry.
The colours used are greatly influenced by the wonderful Irish Landscapes where Tara grew up and where her family still live.
All yarns are hand dyed and painted. Tara uses some luxurious bases such as Alpaca silk which are wonderful for hand made garments / shawls.
