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 50+ 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.
The rich, complex colours of Felted Tweed work equally well in modern intarsia, in traditional stranded knitting, on a cabled Aran, or in a simple stocking stitch design. When the yarn is knit, it magically melds into a fabric with a distinctive soft-focus texture, and the multiple hues take on a life of their own. Our designers also love pairing it with Kidsilk Haze for a new and unique fabric.
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 designer Kaffe Fassett.
