Rowan Cocoon

A subtle light twist lends uniqueness to Rowan Cocoon, a bulky blend of ultra-soft merino and the slight fuzz of kid mohair. The lighter shade doesn’t actually show, but lends a delicious contrast and silvery sheen to the rich colors of Cocoon’s hues. Count on Rowan’s patterns to give knitters lots of great ideas for this multi-faceted yarn.  Made in U.K.

    Comments about Rowan Cocoon:

    Just finishing Venturer Tunic by Sarah Hatton.
    This pattern and wool are a great combo. I'm using the pink colour which is exactly what I hoped for. It does leave a few fluffy bits on dark clothes while I'm knitting but not a serious issue. Extremely easy to work with.

        Comments about Rowan Cocoon:

        I am currently working with this yarn and find it very nice to work with. It is soft and works up well.
        If there was any one thing I did't like, it would be the minor shedding from the mohair. However, it is not enough to make e not want to work with it.

        I used this yarn for a hat and find that it was a bit loose for the pattern I used, stretched significantly and lacked body. It could just be my knitting too...

                Comments about Rowan Cocoon:

                I bought one skein of Misty Blue to ck it out for a throw. This color is lighter than I expected- my monitor shows it to be close to a navy but it's actually a medium blue. For me, this is too fuzzy for a throw/afghan so I'll use it for a hat or mittens. It is a soft, fuzzy, quality yarn though.. .

                Made a sweater from this yarn. Knit up quickly, did not split but shed on my clothing so I had to use a protector. I would not use this product for any garment that is close to the face.
