Below is the Rowan technical description of this yarn.

I currently have a babies blanket, using this yarn, on my needles and I will give you a more amusing and enlightening overview of this yarn shortly. 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!

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!
