About the maker:
Francis O’Donnell comes from a long line of weavers and he began hand weaving in wool at a young age, using traditional methods.
Donegal has a rich heritage of weaving particularly in the village of Ardara and today Francis is one of the few who keeps up this beautiful skill using locally sourced yarn.
Traditionally sheep provided the wool, which was dyed and spun into thread for weaving. The woven cloth in those days was called ‘homespun’.
Homespun was taken to the market and buyers came from all over to purchase it.
