I just read the note about frolicking in this yarn. Too funny, but true! It's sumptuous and I NEVER use that word. I'm knitting a poncho with it and using a falling leaf lace pattern - great stitch definition. Unfortunately there's not much yardage and since I'm not following a pattern I bought far less than I realized I needed so I just had to buy more. I'm already in deep so by the end of my project I'll have a $240 phoncho!! It'll be great though.

Dont make a mistake

I used this to make a Classic Beret which has a lace pattern. It is impossible to rip out to fix mistakes because you cant see the space in the center of the yarn...Read complete review

I used this to make a Classic Beret which has a lace pattern. It is impossible to rip out to fix mistakes because you cant see the space in the center of the yarn where it came off the needle, since it is sort of pre knit. Made worse by the fact that I was using charcoal grey. Just maddening ! Beware.

    Comments about Rowan Lima:

    This is a lovely, soft chainette-style yarn. The heathering is subtle and gives the yarn a nice depth.
    Swatched a whole skein on the suggested needle size (US9) which produced a fabric with a very nice drape.
    Stockinette and garter stitch definition is good and cables look great in this yarn.
    Washed the swatch to block and there was no pilling and the fabric remained firm without stretching.
    There was nothing I didn't like about working with this yarn.

      Comments about Rowan Lima:

      I needed two more balls to finish a sweater, and once again WEBS came to the rescue, since my LYS was sold out.
      Great service. I don't buy a lot of yarn online, since I prefer to buy in store, but when I have to, WEBS is always reliable.

        I made several "slouchy" hats with Rowan Lima. It was wonderful to work with, the colors are lovely and the finished hats were loved by all recipients.

              Comments about Rowan Lima:

              Enjoyed working with this yarn, but the FO does not have as much stitch definition as I'd like - cables, etc. don't show too well. I'm not sure if it's due to the yarn texture or the color (I used one of the heathered ones). Either way, I will likely work with it again for something with a simpler stitch pattern.

              I made gloves, and really enjoyed knitting with this yarn and love the finished product. Doesnt shed much at all, and so far no pilling. Looking forward to the next project

                  The names though give no clue of what the color is... Seem so random
