Very beautiful light thin yarn ,has a coarse texture and is spun unevenly but creates beautiful knits. The tweed is beautiful . I'm currently working on a project which has the herringbone stitch and the stitch turns out beautifully as the project grows. Since the yarn is quite thin ,its going to take forever to finish but its going to be beautiful.
The colors are quite extraordinary . Would highly recommend for fair isle patterns .

Hugely disappointed with color.

The color shown online is a yellow tweed with specks of brown and orange. The yarn itself is a dark brown with flecks of yellow and orange. Whoever took the photo obviously cropped it...Read complete review

The color shown online is a yellow tweed with specks of brown and orange. The yarn itself is a dark brown with flecks of yellow and orange. Whoever took the photo obviously cropped it down to a teensy bit of a colorful highlight and ignored the overall color.

    Comments about Rowan Tweed:

    Lovely color, beautiful tweed, nice texture. The yarn varies in thickness, and that's mostly ok, but one of the five skeins I bought was lace thin in places making some fragile patches in the finished fabric. I would use this again paying close attention to the variation in thickness.

        Comments about Rowan Tweed:

        Hopefully, it's just this ball of yarn, but the thickness is very uneven. When I was casting on it broke twice and I had to tie/knot it. It's very soft and pretty.

        Comments about Rowan Tweed:

        I would consider Rowan TweedDK a bit Tender, it doesn'ttake much tention to break it, It is a bit thick and thin rather than the same size,but not thinking that is a problem when I have it mixed with handspun.Tension worked out as it should. I have ordered several colors, an I am pleasde with it

                Very beautiful light thin yarn ,has a coarse texture and is spun unevenly but creates beautiful knits. The tweed is beautiful . I'm currently working on a project which has the herringbone stitch and the stitch turns out beautifully as the project grows. Since the yarn is quite thin ,its going to take forever to finish but its going to be beautiful.
                The colors are quite extraordinary . Would highly recommend for fair isle patterns .
