Rowan Original Denim

Practical and hard wearing yarn. Rowan Original Denim is a 100% pure cotton and carries all the same characteristics as jeans denim - it will fade as it's washed, and will last a lifetime! This unique yarn gives a wonderful firm fabric making it perfect for cabling, shaped jackets and sweaters. Note that this yarn shrinks in length after its initial washing.

This yarn is available online only. Local customers can choose the In-Store Pickup option when placing their order online.

I bought 4 balls of Rowan Denim #225 after hearing good things about it on Eunny Jang's blog. When I started Knitty's cabled Shedir hat pattern with it, I was amazed at how durable this yarn is! At first, it feels a bit funny in your hands (and it turned my bamboo needles a little blue), but once your project is done you just stick it in the wash, and voila! A soft, stretchy, comfy knit piece comes out. FYI - I purposely put the finished hat through the ringer--hot wash and sturdy dry--to mimic Eunny's fading detail on the ridges of the cables, and it came out better than I thought it would. Even the shrinking detail disclosed on the label came out perfectly. I'd recommend this yarn to anyone looking for a comfy but sturdy washable fabric.

I ordered Rowan denim 229 for cardigan. Didn't have enough so place another order for same project not same dye lot so was expecting slightly different colour but not what I got...my second order of rowan denim 229 came in with completely different quality of yarn. Bad quality went from at least 10 twisted shinny smooth rich blue in first purchase to 5strands of yucky too much white in it poor twist not dark blue at all yarn. The fact that the quality differed to such an extent i had to frog my cardigan and probably will never buy this yarn again online only on a store where I could actually see what I was buying. Very disappointed.

      Comments about Rowan Denim:

      This yarn knits up very evenly, there is very little give, it looks great in simple stockinette. It does turn your hands blue (washes right off) and the roughness is causing my fingers to peel some...but once the shawl is washed, it should be incredibly soft. And the shawl will continue to fade, like blue jeans, at each wash! I will most probably make something else with this cool yarn.

                This is the most awful yarn i have ever used. It bled on my hands while crocheting with it. I am very disappointed for the price. Would never buy again!!!

                  The yarn is fine but the color is completly different than pictured. I thought I was getting a dark blue jean and this is a light baby blue. I kept the yarn but was disappointed in the color.

                  I was looking forward to this yarn. Was only 4-6 rows into a small sample and my fingertips were stained with blue dye. Unfortunate/unhealthy. Otherwise, the yarn had a lovely feel.

                      I love this yarn. My sweater is amazingly soft. Follow directions for shrinkage. I've now bought the white yarn and hope they add more colors.

                      The yarn wears and washes beautifully. Follow the label for shrinkage. Shrinks in length only. It's a better fabric after washing. Some fading. Comfortable as that favorite old tee shirt! Highly recommend denim and can't wait to knit 2nd sweater in a lighter blue.. Enjoy!
