      Comments about Rowan Creative Linen:

      A nice, soft yarn, but sheds like crazy! Sweater is still blocking, but stitches did not "bounce back" once wet. Hoping it drapes properly once dry. Used three skeins, did not find any knots.

      Service and delivery comments:

      As always, service was excellent. Just not thrilled with the yarn itself.

      Comments about Rowan Creative Linen:

      I am knitting a lacy, summer cardigan with the Creative Linen. I wanted a 'cool' yarn for summer wear. The color of the yarn is very nice, the feel of the yarn is soft and will get softer with washing. It is a bit stiff while knitting, but not detrimentally so.

      The biggest drawback is that the yarn splits badly. I started knitting the cardigan on Addi turbo lace needles and had to switch to regular Addi turbos. With the intricate lace pattern, it is too easy to leave behind a loop of two of the stitches due to the yarn splitting.

      A minor point of interest is that the yarn sheds tiny bits of linen as you knit so you might want to wear a smooth T-shirt or such while knitting with it.

          Comments about Rowan Creative Linen:

          I used this linen and cotton yarn to make a tam hat for the summer. It worked out beautifully and is lightweight and airy. color so natural too. Love the texture. I havent washed it yet.

          Service and delivery comments:

          I ordered a lot from WEBS. They are very fast with the shipping and products are as described. I had gotten alot of great quality yarns and brands for less money due to their discounts when buying a bigger order and/or closeout sales. Hooked.
