        Comments about Rowan Tweed:

        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 .

            Comments about Rowan Tweed:

            This yarn is NOT for those who like nice even stitches. The fabric is uneven, lumpy, bumpy and sometimes over spun. It knits up into the most wonderful fabric that is one of a kind. I would use this for outer wear only as it is scratchy. I have one more pattern that I will use this yarn in.
