      Comments about Rowan Colourspun:

      Soft and nice. But before knitting make sure to do a sample and count again your tension after washing the sample. It's really BIG difference. The yarn is good for smth. smooth and oversize - but not for definetely things which have to be in form and strong. Nice for shawls, swirls and scarves.

            I love the soft color changes and beautiful fabric that this worsted weight yarn creates. I bought Colourspun in both a brown and a blue color way to make the Churchmouse poncho. The first one turned out absolutely stunning. Even my best knitting buddies were impressed, but honestly - it was all just this beautiful yarn!,

              I used this for a shoulder cozy/poncho. It is my favorite thing. Great colors and also makes great berets.

              Comments about Rowan Colourspun:

              I bought this yarn for the Skye pattern in Rowan 52. The pattern is written perfectly for this yarn, and I can't imagine as nice a result with any other yarn. The pattern makes amazing use of the variegation in the colors, the subtlety of the color differences, and the lovely heathering in the yarn colors.

              I never in a million years would have picked up a ball of this yarn from a shelf. It is not a very appealing yarn on the ball, but I think this will be one of the most lovely things I've ever knit (in almost 40 years of knitting).

                  I haven't started my project yet, but it will be a modern version of a Norwegian sweater. The colors are exactly as shown on this site, and the service was excellent. Prompt, complete, and more economical than other sites. Will definitely revisit to make more purchases!
