    I was able to find a few offering. These guys must be huge in Japan if their sweater can bring in these prices...

    if anyone is looking to buy a wine 6a, end has a full size run up. they're more expensive than ordering direct ($260 + shipping), but you also don't have to wait 12 weeks.

    If anyone has received a response regarding the availability of heathered/marled colors, please post. Just trying to minimize inbound spam for Inverallen.

    Inverallan used to have Donegal tweed and Aran marled yarns. I asked about the Aran marled and was told that their supplier no longer supplies marled yarns.

    It's very warm and I feel as though I can wear it with just a longsleeve tee and be alright in 20-30F weather. It's also quite heavy. The weave is thick and the wool is on the coarser side. It's like a beefier version of SNS Herning knits.

    Alright guys here we go...

    These Donegal Tweeds are currently available. I only inquired about blues and purples. And the orange, for laughs. To my eye they are all pretty awesome, plus I have a feeling they look better in person. There are other shades that may become available down the road (of blue and purple), but Shannon doesn't have color cards for them at the moment. She has been very prompt with her replies. And patient. Very patient. I recommend you don't pester her about when the other shades of blue and purple will be available. She explained that this is a busy time of year for Inverallan. In terms of priorities for them, I'd say servicing the needs of nitpicky internet fashun headz (that's including me) falls quite low on their list. Let's not make this a Dayton situation. Seriously. If you have questions, post them up here, hopefully it can find an answer through one of us. I know I still have a few. Part of the reason why I've taken this long to post this (the color cards that is) is I wanted to get the go-ahead from her. In light of the fact it's their heavy season, I would not suggest asking about Blacks, Grays, Greens, Oatmeals, or other Donegal Tweed options. Seems there's plenty to choose from. Just my two cents. I have also offered to help mitigate the flood of questions she's been getting. She liked this idea. And I don't mind, honestly. I've already exchanged quite a few emails with her. If there's something specific you guys all want to know, for instance what other DT colors are available, or the cost of other DT knits, shoot me a pm and I could include it in a bulk email. It would save time and would certainly cut down on the confusion on her end since she wouldn't have to reply to so many individual emails. Just throwing that out there.

    Pricing for a Donegal Tweed 6A: £160. Not bad. No VAT deduction. Payment due when item is ready to ship.

    Lead time: 14 weeks minimum.

    I love all the purple shades but decided that muff would be easier to mix with other stuff. Really glad you got purple and blue cards because that's what I wouldve asked for anyways hah

    ^ Cool man, happy it helped. Was just trying to think of what would work best with quote unquote sf approved stuff. You own a lot of nn type stuff right? Muff should really compliment that well.


    Derrybeg is sweet. Super colorful. Nice avy btw.

    Received my A3 in the mail today and my first impression is they fit extremely slim. I'm 6'0 160-165 lbs and a 42 was snug on me with just a t shirt on. It seems like it will give a lot but I would suggest sizing up. The quality is on par with my ervell and SNS knits but looking at them side by side you can tell that the inverallan is hand knit which shows that these knitters put into these sweaters.

    They have a diving club that might be of interest:

    I'm having such a hard time deciding between Inverallan and SNS Herning for my first cardigan. How would you compare the fits?

    I sent her the End chart in my last email. Hopefully she can vouch for it. She did say the sizing is pretty literal, ie a size 42 will measure 42" across. Would be cool to hear about the rest tho. She also said they'll stretch a bit with wear, due to the weight and the fact they're handmade. She also said to expect some variance from piece to piece on account of them being hand sewn.

    Cyc mentioned it help to check out zissou's group order for the 3A from a while back (I'd pull some quotes but I'm on my phone). The cut and weave are different but still. Food for thought and all.

    Anyone out there who's put some wear into one of these please chime in.


    Sup peanut gallery. Suggestions? jus trying to avoid a Dayton type scenario.

    I normally wear size mediums and I got a 6A Sz 40 (based on the End Clothing size chart). The Sz 40 fit is definitely snug, but that's the fit I was going for (rather than a more slouchy relaxed fit). Even when buttoned up it doesn't really restrict my torso/arm movements since the knit can stretch quite a bit.

    What happened with Dayton?
