    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've used this yarn for a Bandana Cowl, which is still lovely, soft, and warm after a few winters of use, and am currently making a Rowan sweater pattern with it. This yarn has such nice drape, and is very soft and warm. This is by far my favorite bulky wool/mohair blend yarn.

        Bought to make a complicated pattern and find it wonderfully forgiving when I must unravel and start the row again. Love the way it looks in the cable pattern and look forward to wearing the sweater.

            Comments about Rowan Cocoon:

            Used a pattern for "Ruched Scarf." Upon completion the scarf measured 75" after a 10 minute soak in tepid water and wool wash, towel roll to remove excess water and loosely laying flat to dry it grew to 92"-(bonus for recipient!) but is this normal for this fiber?

            I purchased this for a cowl. I just love the color I chose which was Bilberry. It is such soft yarn and knits up quickly and will be ideal for the cowl pattern I am using. It does shed a bit and will show hairs on dark clothing but I still think it is a wonderful product and would buy again.

                    Am knitting the lattice cowl (from Cowl Girls) with this yarn in Shale. This yarn is more fuzzy than I expected, and it's soft, though it tends to shed a bit, but it's worth it. It's going to be a very warm accessory. Not sure I'd knit a whole sweater from it, though. The colors are limited unless you like neutrals.
