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.

    Comments about Rowan Summer Tweed:

    I have now made two sweaters from Summer Tweed. It is a lovely combination of cotton and silk - the tweedy nature makes it a bit more forgiving than mercerized cotton yarn. It came in an array of colors I liked.

        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.
