I love the yarn, it is soft and strong with vibrant colors. It knitted up well with no splitting. I made a hat and mittens for my 20-year-old son, he loves them all. The yarn shipped quickly from Deramores and the price was competitive. I would definitely order again!
Beautiful yarn nicely packaged.
I have found Rowan yarn to be high in quality. The yarn is consistent throughout with great texture. This is true for all the different types I have worked with, DK, Kid classic Arran, Kidsilk haze, and Felted Tweed. They are a pleasure to work with.
Just getting started but so far seems like a lovely yarn. Shows great stitch definition.
