    I have knitted 2 sweaters and crocheted a vest out of this yarn. They Turned out beautifully. I washed one sweater in cold water in the machine, never dreaming that a 50/50 blend would felt. That sweater is now Barbie size. since then I have washed the vest by soaking in the sink with no agitation at all and it came out ok. Be very careful when cleaning this yarn. it is also quite scratchy if you're wool sensitive like me. but it is beautiful!!

    I loved this yarn it was so soft - at first. I made a sweater - I always wash my new sweaters before wearing and so I washed it and the first sweater felted. I was so disappointed but I thought I washed it wrong so

    I order some more yarn for a second sweater - again I washed the sweater - it felted and yes, I did wash the sweater by hand no dryer - actually washed another sweater that was 100% wool that did not felt or shrink.

    I will never buy this yarn again - expensive yarn that felts. Hours of work wasted so disappointing. Never again.

      Yarn splits easily, so you have to look while knitting - I like to watch tv and knit, so I have to go back sometimes when the yarn splits.

        I second to the 5 star comments and recommendations by other reviews here, great yarn, wish Rowan would carry the same yarn in worsted, fingering and sport weight. best cotton/wool combo yarn that has great possibilities.

          I made a high/low summer top using this yarn double-stranded. It knit up quickly and turned out really cute. Very nice hand.

            Comments about Rowan Belle Organic DK by Amy Butler:

            This lovely yarn is so soft it makes me want to cuddle with my work before I'm done! I love the tomato color because it falls between red and coral and looks like sun-kissed tomatoes. I'm crocheting a soft and lightweight summer afghan but will have to fight to keep it away from my granddaughter who already loves it.

              I have a book of patterns for using this yarn and the aran weight counterpart. I like being able to choose a pattern, order the listed quantity of yarn, and start knitting - no calculations or comparisons needed.

              Service and delivery comments:

              I was very happy with the quick and easy service, prompt delivery, and the good price (the yarn happened to be on "clearance").

                I use this yarn to crochet baby accessories that I sell, and it is perfect! The weight is good, feels nice in hand, and the colors are true and vibrant. It is also super soft, always important when making things for babies! I have had no trouble with this yarn whether making it into hats or booties...great results every time!
