        Comments about Rowan Handknit Cotton:

        I used the handknit cotton to make a striped baby blanket for my nephew. The colors are bright and the yarn doesn't bleed in the wash. It was easy to work with and shows the detail of the work nicely. I did have a little trouble when weaving in my multiple ends as the yarn isn't plush enough to do a good job of hiding that necessary evil. Overall, I loved it so much, I bought more to make another blanket in little girl colors too!

        Service and delivery comments:

        Delivery is prompt and everything arrived in good condition. Nothing was twisted or knotted and no broken yarn within any of my skeins.

          I bought this yarn to make baby bibs and burp clothes. It will be soft next to the baby's skin. The colors are pretty, too.

          • Machine Washable

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Baby bibs
            • Baby Outfits

            Comments about Rowan Handknit Cotton:

            I purposely chose this cotton to knit petal baby bibs. I know now it is the best as it is easily laundered and no staining seems to stay in the yarn when washed. Especially good for baby bibs - babies are rather messy eaters as we all know.

            I make these up to give a new mom for her little one. I really enjoy the color range of pretty bright and cheerful colors.

            The project I did worked up very quickly and looked especially good when finished. I would recommend this cotton to anyone who works in this medium requiring such a yarn.

                I knitted up some nice washcloths for my mom using complementary colors for her bathroom decor. Like all cotton, there is little give in the yarn. But i used smaller needles than the band called for and that helped.

                        This yarn was used to bake a baby hat and sweater. Mother-to-be and co-workers commented on the softness of the yarn and its colour. I enjoyed working with it and would used it again.

                          This is a wonderful yarn to work with. I would recommend it to anyone, new or experienced. The stitches are clear, easy to catch mistakes, and so nice on the hands. Have not washed the summer sweater yet, but if it washes as well and it handles........

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          Great service. I had to order this yarn in two orders, and when I mentioned the lot number from the first order, it was matched with the second. Lovely.
