These are then carded to make regenerated fibre, which is then spun into this beautiful, high quality yarn, which gives life to new hand knitting designs.  Made in Italy.

This yarn is available online only.

I made a pullover and a cardigan with this yarn and love the drape of both. It is soft recycled yarn which speaks to my green sensibilities. I get compliments every time I wear the sweaters made with this yarn. I plan on purchasing more. The colors are beautiful.

I am still working on the sweater so I am not sure how the end product will be. I read on the WEBs site that this yarn should wash up softer and I am hoping for this as right now it is coarse. I live in the southwest so I didn't want wool and I really don't like wearing acrylic. PRO: The sweater that I am knitting is lace on the top and this yarn works up in the lace pattern very nicely. The color is great and I love that it is made up of recycled materials. CON: The yarn does have a tendency to unravel after ripping and re-knitting but that may just be me. I am just returning to knitting after a 30 year hiatus and I am a bit rusty!! All in all, I would definitely buy this yarn again.

    Comments about Rowan Purelife Revive:

    I have crocheted two cowls with this yarn in different colors and they have a gorgeous drape and feel. The weight is light enough to make this a three-season cowl. The marling in the yarn is beautiful and I love that it is made from recycled fibers. I plan to buy more of this yarn to make gifts.

    Finished garment has a lovely hand, and the heathered tones are lovely, but still do a good job of showing pattern.

    This is a #1 resource for matching dye lots when I'm running low! Staff is very helpful and my order arrives quickly so I can keep knitting.

      Comments about Rowan Purelife Revive:

      I purchased colors pearl and silt to use in the Shibui Knits Bevel pattern. I knit a fairly large swatch to check out how the colors got along---the yarn and the subtle colors within it open up nicely as it is knit. How it will wash, whether it will stretch etc. are unknown as it's still on the needles.

        Comments about Rowan Purelife Revive:

        I purchased this yarn to make a shawl for a friend who lives in Tucson, AZ. I will never purchase again due to the splitty yarn. It also did not look nice after having to rip out a section. I could not reuse it. I bought this yarn based on the good reviews it had received so was really surprised at the quality when I started knitting with it. I guess I've been spoiled by really good yarns.

              I had planned to use this for a cardigan for myself. I love the idea of recycling fiber for yarn. I have used Kollage Riveting many times and like it very much. My only issue with my purchase of Revive is that there is an overabundance of red in the Pumice colorway. I do not care for nor wear warm colors and was hoping for something more neutral. I will be returning it for a possible exchange.

              Service and delivery comments:

              I am very impressed with the service I have received from WEBS. Using the online site to order was easy. I received a confirmation shortly after submitting my order and my yarn arrived within a week. After receiving the order I decided to make the sweater larger and needed several more balls of yarn. I again ordered online and left a note with the dye lot number. My 2nd order arrived in just a few days. I couldn't believe it!! I am a needlepointer too and have used two online sites. Both of these sites took weeks to process my orders and one order arrived without all the yarn needed. So, thank you WEBS for such good service!

                I am using a Rowan pattern (Shallot) from the book to use for this yarn to make a sweater for my daughter who lives in Florida. This yarn is perfect for a warm climate, it's recycled cotton, silk and viscose(?), and is a great weight and really cute pattern. My daughter is very "green" so I think she is really going to like the sweater!
                Cheers!

                Service and delivery comments:

                Product arrived prompty, in good condition. Nice way to buy yarn up here in Vermont. My local store doesn't always have the color or amount that I want.

                    One of Rowan's most versatile yarns. Soft colors but good palette....I used for a few sweater projects and all were fun to knit.

                      Blends greatly with cotton for a fall look. The little flecks of color in it would combine easily with a number of solids.
