Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK (8ply)
I was born 'just over the hill' from the Rowan woollen mill in Yorkshire, England. I have always had a 'soft spot' for this very British, down to earth company. The Rowan range of yarns is vast, I have selected my very favourite yarns as I would need a shop the size of a rugby field to stock them all!
I currently have a babies blanket on my needles using this yarn and it is a real treat to knit with! I was born just 'over the hill' from the Rowan Mill in Yorkshire, England. This fabulous yarn company, along with Yorkshire Puddings, more than make up for the incredibly high rainfall this scenic part of England is subjected to!
Okay, lets do the technical speel! A super-soft blend of 66% merino wool and 34% tussah silk creates a gentle touch, developed especially for your little ones. What’s more, this yarn can be machine washed, meaning ease of care and cleaning. Boasting a wonderfully soft handle, the yarn is available in a playfully bright range of colours, alongside more delicate pastels, to suit all requirements.
It’s not just for babies – this yarn can also be used to create luxuriously soft garments and accessories for grown ups too!
