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!
Ask any Rowan fan for their favourite yarn and there's a good chance it'll be Felted Tweed, (closesly followed by Kidsilk Haze). Felted Tweed is a light DK weight, with a beautiful tweed effect. We offer a concise selection of shades, inspired from nature-des ranging from cool watery tones to a warm cherry red and fiery ginger.
