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:

    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.

            Comments about Rowan Cocoon:

            I knit Kirsten Hipsky's Eva Vest in the largest size in less than a month with this yarn during July on Dreamz wooden needles. It went well except on very humid days when the yarn tugged on the needles. Yes, it snagged (or split) but when I just dropped the marginal strand, it just worked into the fabric. Correcting errors in cables was a problem because of the splitting, but again, I just got the main part of the strand and it looked fine. (Fyi, I am picky about my knitting--usually working on size 3-6, so I do mean just moving along looked fine),

            Hopefully, the wearer will think the garment as soft as I found the yarn.
