I bought this yarn for a sweater that called for Summer Tweed. I ordered it sight unseen depending on the Rowan name for quality. I spent more time removing trash woven in than I did knitting the sweater. At times the debris was so woven in I couldn't remove it without breaking the yarn. The trash is so sharp I don't know if I will be able to wear it next to my skin. That is why I made this sweater out of cotton. I will never use it again and plan on telling my friends about the poor quality.

      Love this company and their fast service. I underestimated yardage and they were able to match the dye lot. Thanks for your expertise and acknowledgement to all knitters.

              I made a lace cowl with this using US 10 needles. Knitted up very quickly and feels much softer than it's rustic looks would suggest. Rich color. I would use this again.

                  I chose this yarn to knit a lightweight summer handbag. It's nubby texture and the straw color give the bag the exact look I was going for! I over-ordered and have enough to make a sleeveless pullover. I love the feel and look of my "vest". I would definitely buy this yarn again.

                    I used this yarn to make a vest for my adult son. It took a bit to get used to...a lot of texture...but by the time I had the first row knitted I was all set. I will definitely use this yarn again.
