    I have used rowan wool/cotton before for baby blankets and they hold up very well to washing, get soft and wrap well.

      Comments about Rowan Wool Cotton 4 Ply:

      I have successfully used this yarn several times for the cuffs and ribbed edges at the bottom front and back of jumpers otherwise knit with cotton and/or linen yarns. Thanks to this yarn I was able to avoid that these bits loose their shape which in my experience tends to happen with jumpers knitted solely with cotton and linen yarns. The percentage of wool in this yarn helps keep the jumpers in shape even after washing them many times, while the percentage of cotton avoids for the yarn to be too warm to wear in hot weather. Nothing to complain about, would by this again anytime.

        Comments about Rowan Wool Cotton 4 Ply:

        Know that when you block your project using this yarn that it is going to stretch when wet or damp. You have to ease it in to size when blocking if you are using the wet block method.

          I am carrying this yarn with Rowan angora haze and the colors are a perfect match. It will look beautiful together. A little "fuzz" from the angora and heft from the wool cotton.

            I knitted a traditional cabled cricket sweater for a five-year old using the white color and a charming 1940's pattern from my mother in England. I am very pleased with the outcome, and hope he will like it too!

              I absolutely loved knitting with this. It's now my new favorite fingerweight yarn. I love it for baby knits as it's machine washable and very soft.

                  Knitting up beautifully, and soft and warm for my 18 month old grandson. He'll look great in the soft blue. Shows the cables nicely.
