Diane Friedman founded Tahki Yarns in 1968, when she discovered a mill in County Donegal Ireland that was spinning lovely wool tweed weaving yarns for hand-loomed fabrics. From that trip, Donegal Tweed was born. Some years later, her search for the world’s most beautiful mercerized cotton brought her to a mill in Greece, where she developed Cotton Classic. These are just two of the many natural-fiber yarns which are the company’s trademark. Today, as then, Tahki Yarns is known for high-quality and affordable yarns, with a pattern line inspired by American sportswear.
