Rowan Softyak 8 ply


Brand Rowan


  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!

  Rowan Softyak is rather lovely. As soon as it arrived in store I grabbed a couple of balls and within an evening had  whipped up some super cute babies beanies. My colleague, Marya's, interest was also piqued and she grabbed a whole bagful and is beavering away at a sweater! 

  Although this yarn is predominantly comprised of cotton, the addition of yak fibre and a touch of nylon makes for a stunningly soft handle, a garment that will keep its shape and one that's  transeasonal and versatile.
