      Yarn quality good, but watch for knots!

            Comments about Rowan Wool Cotton:

            I like the yarn. It appears to work up fine, but watch for knots in each ball! That can be annoying when you run into one after only two inches of work!

            Comments about Rowan Wool Cotton:

            This is a great yarn to work with. It is soft and supple. I hope that once it is washed it is still as soft. My only complaint is that every skein had a section that was spliced together. Because I had to weave these ends in, it took more yarn than the directions called for.

              Comments about Rowan Wool Cotton:

              Rowan's wool cotton is the perfect yarn, a go-to yarn for a slew of projects you might want to do. It is a great weight for three season wear. It is suitable for indoor or outdoor garments. I love the colorways of which I choose what a colleague calls, 'coastal' colors. I have made at least six garments with this yarn and am planning more!

              Great yarn but pills with wear

              Cons

              • Sweaters

              Comments about Rowan Wool Cotton:

              The striped sweater I knit with this came out great. The yarn is soft, easy to work and it knits quickly for the weight.
              The only thing was that after I wore the sweater a couple of times the yarn got fuzzy, which looks messy in the area where the 2 stripe colors meet. And it pills in the under arm area and wherever there is friction.
              So it's a bit disappointing because the sweater won't look good very long and at this price, I'd expect more wear.

                Comments about Rowan Wool Cotton:

                This yarn is too often overlooked. It's perfect for stitch defined projects. It's a true sport weight yarn and it behaves! Washes beautifully, knit in classic designs, it will last forever and be cool enough for all seasons and soft-resilient enough for the most rambunctious baby. I love it!

                  I'm using this yarn to knit a cabled sweater. When deciding on what to order, I made sure to choose a yarn that would show off cable stitches. This is the one! I can honestly see myself finishing my project with this. (Which I'm normally terrible at!)

                  Very Soft - Great stitch definition

                  By Anonymous

                  Comments about Rowan Wool Cotton:

                  I needed a specific color of Debbie Bliss cashmerino which was not available, so someone recommended I use this yarn as a substitute which had the color. I was very pleased with it. This yarn is very soft to the touch, can be used against a newborn's skin, knits up very nicely, has a soft drape, yet does not loose it's shape and has great stitch definition. I will use. I feel this is a good all season yarn and definitly will use it again.
