New Season from Rowan!

Rowan Alpaca Classic - 57% Alpaca/43% Cotton

We've got a new yarn from Rowan this Autumn/Winter.

Alpaca Classic is made using a cotton net which is filled with superfine alpaca fibers.  It's a soft, light weight yarn and we've got 10 shades in the shop.


Patterns by Lisa Richardson, using Alpaca Classic, are included in the new Rowan magazine (Issue 64, in the shop!) but it's a versatile yarn that works well on different needle sizes for garments and accessories!

Rowan Felted Tweed DK - a blend of 50% merino wool, 25% alpaca and 25% viscose

We've also got 8 new shades of Felted Tweed DK.  This yarn has a tweed effect, perfect for fair isles, striping and other colour work.


These new shades were created by Kaffe Fassett and there is also a pattern book, Kaffe's Colours, using these new bold shades and the existing Felted Tweed colour palette.



We've also got Rowan Loves... Felted Tweed and Kidsilk Haze back in stock.  Simple and stylish garments and accessories that show different combos of Felted Tweed and Kidsilk Haze... and... these garments can be knitted in the new Alpaca Classic too!

Oh... and don't forgot our Carbeth Cardigan by Kate Davies.  This uses 2 strands of Felted Tweed held together... lots of colour possibilities in the shop!
