Will post measurements in a moment.


Thanks, that clears things up a bit. Actual sleeve measurements would be spiffy and much appreciated as well!

Also, there is so much wool knit so tightly I suspect that you could literally pull the sleeves long to stretch them.

I'm hesitant to open up this can of worms, but any clue on possible customs fees?
post #454 of 961
Did any of you guys get like an official order confirmation?
post #455 of 961
just something along the lines of " thanks for your order form, once we have your garment ready we'll be in touch"
post #456 of 961
Ok so I still can't decipher this single vs double donegal. Are the color swatches we've seen single, double, or are they the same and single/double just determines thickness?

same color swatches. from what ive been told its the thickness. at least that's the gist i get.

i asked her for an order form for the single yarns this morning, and also for a little more info re weight/thickness and fit of the sweaters made w the single. will post it up
post #458 of 961
Awesome, thanks again for the help!
post #459 of 961
you're totally welcome dude. here's what she had to say about the single
Quote:
In regards to the single donegal weight and thickness, its quite simple, its half the weight and half the thickness, as the double donegal uses 2 ends of yarn, fit will still be the same as we still knit to whichever size required, only difference you might find is double is a bit more snug due to the thickness and yes it looks less chunky, I can't comment regarding the weather i'm afraid as everyone is different, for example in 18 degrees I would still wear a jumper, however, a lot of people would only wear a T-Shirt, its different to everyone.

hope that helps. don't know if i mentioned it before but she said a while back that the single donegal was lighter than the aran. so in terms of weight it goes like this

double donegal > aran > single donegal

she also sent the order form along with this

Officious Measurements Chart/Sizing


Quote:
We have just taken a few garments out and measured them and they are as follows: (again bearing in mind this differs slightly from knitter to knitter)


SIZE CHART

34: chest 17, back length 24, arm length 16.5

36: chest 18, back length 24.5, arm length 17

38: chest 19, back length 25, arm length 17

40: chest 20, back length 25.5, arm length 18

42: chest 21, back length 26, arm length 18.5

44: chest 22, back length 27, arm length 19

When we are knitting a garment from scratch we can have the length and arms a bit shorter if required, although I must say length and arms don't alter much as your not really stretching them when wearing, if you get what I mean ?

Styleforum consensus is to size up from your usual size (I am normally a 36, ordered a 38) unless you want a slim-fit chunky cardigan (why would you?).

Single donegals are the same color, just different thickness.



Regarding the Inverallan brand (New labels)

Quote:
I'm afraid that we are unable to supply garments with our 'Inverallan' label on to the USA any longer as our trademark has been taken out there by our Japanese agent who wants all orders to go through him, however we are getting ready to launch a new label in the next few months which if we need to knit a garment(not from stock,as label is not launched yet) and as your order will take 12-14weeks to complete

we can put the new label on or you can have it without a label.

I am very sorry about this so if you can let me know whether you want the new label or no label

Quote:
There will be a new name, however, 'Inverallan' will still exist, it is to avoid the Trademark issues in certain countries, otherwise we wouldnt be able to sell to the USA, there will also be new designs, however, these will not be available under the 'Inverallan' label, solely the new label

^^^ Thanks for consolidating information and thank you to dotcomzzzz.

In regard to the underlined portion of the following quote, I would take it to mean that the double donegal is less chunky. However, that does not seem to make much sense to me. Am I misunderstanding something? I am assuming the "it" is in response to a question and not referring back to the previous reference to "double" donegal.

"In regards to the single donegal weight and thickness, its quite simple, its half the weight and half the thickness, as the double donegal uses 2 ends of yarn, fit will still be the same as we still knit to whichever size required, only difference you might find is double is a bit more snug due to the thickness and yes it looks less chunky,"

I think it's just some confusing grammar and that she is referring to the single.
post #464 of 961
It's not confusing to me, she means it'll look less chunky because the double will be more tightly wound yarn because its two ends yarns. Where as the single will be more open because there isn't as many strands in it. Double will be more dense so the knitting won't be as open but defiantly be warmer. Whereas the single will be more open because the yarn isn't as tightly wound so it's less dense the wool has freedom to open. The single will look more substantial/chunky/fluffy however you like to put it whereas the double will look tighter/dense or more fitted.

Honestly id go with the double if your any bigger than a 38/48 since the it'll look really chunky and add weight you in the single yarn.
post #465 of 961
plus one to that.

g tran what an absolutely good call condensing all the relevant info, cheers man.

and thanks guys for being so cool about this. honestly.

at this point im pretty much stepping aside. with all the info posted ordering something is fairly straightforward. i like the fact that this has been a group effort. i also get the feeling this is going to turn out well
