    Disappointing

    By Crazed Maritime Knitter

    from New Brunswick

    Verified Buyer

    • Nice Texture
    • Soft

      Comments about Rowan Purelife Organic Cotton DK:

      I love Rowan products but this cotton yarn disappointed. The multiple strands unravel constantly and it's very easy to miss a strand and discover the mistake rows later.

      • Baby things

      Comments about Rowan Purelife Organic Cotton DK:

      I've bought a lot of this and other Rowan yarn lately to make baby things for friends, and I really like this yarn except for the color inconsistency from skein to skein within the same dyelot/batch. I knitted a nice baby blanket in Oak Bark, and there was one skein that was lighter than the others and created an obvious band of color. The only other knock - and I don't even know that it's a bad thing - since it's made up of multiple smaller strands that are loosely woven, it was somewhat easy to split it while knitting.
      I do like the yarn, though, and the colors. I like that it's organic and naturally dyed.
