New Yarns to Inspire You by Rowan
  Our New Rowan Wall - Thank you staff!
Hemp Tweed by Rowan has a great hand and is lovely to knit - Great patterns, Too!
   A blend of 75% wool and 25% hemp, resulting in a modern tweed effect, soft to the touch yarn which is a joy to knit. Wool and hemp create 'breathable' knitted fabrics which are cool to wear in warm weather and warm in colder temperatures. Hemp fibre is resistant to stretching so does not distort with use and naturally softens with wear - hemp does not wear out it wears in!

 Big Wool Silk    Accessories
Adding a little bit more luxury to Rowan Big Wool, this yarn is 70% wool and 30% silk, giving a beautiful sheen to the knitted fiber. Soft to touch and luxurious to wear this is a little bit extra for all lovers of Big Wool. 14 accessories and garment designs by Marie Wallin for women using Rowan’s new yarn Big Wool Silk.  See a video of Accessories Collection here!
