Rowan Felted Tweed
Ask any Rowan fan for their favourite yarn and there’s a good chance it’ll be Felted Tweed. Spun in a light DK weight, with a beautiful tweed effect and an amazing 40 colours to choose from, it’s a Fair Isle knitter’s dream. But that’s not all. The magical combination of 50% lightly-felted wool, 25% viscose and 25% alpaca makes it supremely blockable and a gorgeous option for lacework as a result. Or knit it in garter stitch for a drapey, squishable fabric that is cosy, but light and easy to wear. Choose from nature-inspired shades ranging from cool watery tones to warming cherry red and fiery ginger and prepare to fall in love! Now available in special colourways chosen by world-renowned designers Kaffe Fassett and Dee Hardwicke
More About Rowan Yarns
The name Rowan was inspired by the beautiful shrubs lining the banks of the river Holme in Yorkshire, an area deeply entwined in textile heritage and tradition. Established in 1978, we started life above a grocery store near Huddersfield, initially specialising in kits.
Later, the team moved to a traditional former textile mill nearby and we are still based in the same area today. Our founders Stephen Sheard and Simon Cockin wanted to produce knitting yarns, which were both quality and perfect for the design trends of the time, showcasing an array of natural fibres in a paintbox colour palette. They placed the utmost value on providing yarn shades which could be translated into timeless design, and these values are still at the core of Rowan today. We are proud to have created over 60 issues of our inspirational Knitting & Crochet Magazine, now available worldwide.
Today, we use the inspiration of key designers such as Kaffe Fassett, Martin Storey, Brandon Mably, Sarah Hatton and Lisa Richardson to create our seasonal pattern collections. Our ultimate aim remains to offer a selection of high quality yarns, which are a pleasure to knit with and to wear. Rowan designs represent a full range, from heritage and timeless pieces to modern and fashion reflective knitwear, all with an emphasis on the best fibres available.
