Have you ever visited a place and instantly felt at home? Ag Baile (egg bahl-le) encompasses that feeling in Irish, meaning at home. I felt that feeling in all of Ireland, from the minute I stepped off the plane. This was one of my favorite photos from my trip to Ireland. The photo is of the ruins of Cistercian monastery, Hore Abbey, near the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary, Ireland. Hore is thought to be derived from ‘iubhair’ which means yew tree. It was given to Archbishop David MacCearbhaill in 1270, who caused local resentment to the town of Cashel when he started to give local lands and mills over to the abbey.
The colorway is a tonal of varying shades of dark green and light green, just like Ireland.

Please note that color variations may occur from skein to skein as a result of hand dyeing. I have matched the colors in the photo as close as real life as possible however some differences may be noticed from monitor to monitor. Please also order as many skeins as you need for your project as color variation may happen one dye lot to the next.
