Rowan Summerspun

Summerspun is a beautiful yarn in a 50% Merino Wool and 50% Cotton blend. The yarn is made by twisting a printed cotton end and a melange wool end together, resulting in a wonderful subtle striping effect. Summerspun has the coolness of cotton with the spring of wool, so it is a joy to knit and crochet. Made in Italy.

I am using this yarn to make a ruffled Saffron cardigan for my niece (Piccadilly and Greenwich.) I passed on this yarn a few times, because it looked on the ball like it would split like crazy, being essentially two strands of yarn just laying next to one another. However, I have not had that problem, using the Dreamz anyway, as they're not extremely sharp. I like the feel of this yarn. When washed it reminds me of a comfy sweatshirt!

used with Revive in colorwork sweater

Used in combination with Revive to knit Rowan's Tilt sweater. My color choice is much more muted than the designer's.

        Comments about Rowan Summerspun:

        I obtained an e-pattern from Tahki Yarns called Dallas Top. I wore it for the first time this week and was quite thrilled at the reaction. Friends had seen me working on it. It is nice to know that after all my effort the finished product evidences a certain quality.

          Comments about Rowan Summerspun:

          Great warm weather yarn, made a summer weight shawl with fringe and it is wonderful. So much so that I bought it in two more color ways for a tank sweater and another shawl. This yarn feels great, blocks well and has a lovely drape to it. I suspect that it will get softer with wear.

            My first attempt at using what amounts to two strands of yarn - works up just great, the colors blend so beautifully and I've added beads. What a spring time treat.

              Cons

              • Sweaters

              Comments about Rowan Summerspun:

              This yarn knits up easily and blocks beautifully. It has a crisp feel that is more like cotton than wool. I did have a little trouble with the loose twist occasionally. I wish Rowan would make this in slightly brighter colors, or give more color options.
