Rowan Summerspun

Summerspun is a beautiful yarn in a 50% Merino Wool and 50% Cotton blend. The yarn is made by twisting a printed cotton end and a melange wool end together, resulting in a wonderful subtle striping effect. Summerspun has the coolness of cotton with the spring of wool, so it is a joy to knit and crochet. Made in Italy.

    Comments about Rowan Summerspun:

    Great warm weather yarn, made a summer weight shawl with fringe and it is wonderful. So much so that I bought it in two more color ways for a tank sweater and another shawl. This yarn feels great, blocks well and has a lovely drape to it. I suspect that it will get softer with wear.

        Beautiful Yarn

        By Dee Dee41

        from Knoxville, TN

        Pros

        • Crisp feel
        • Stitch definition

        Cons

        • muddy color

        Best Uses

        • Scarves
        • Sweaters

        Comments about Rowan Summerspun:

        This yarn knits up easily and blocks beautifully. It has a crisp feel that is more like cotton than wool. I did have a little trouble with the loose twist occasionally. I wish Rowan would make this in slightly brighter colors, or give more color options.

        Comments about Rowan Summerspun:

        I am using this yarn to make a ruffled Saffron cardigan for my niece (Piccadilly and Greenwich.) I passed on this yarn a few times, because it looked on the ball like it would split like crazy, being essentially two strands of yarn just laying next to one another. However, I have not had that problem, using the Dreamz anyway, as they're not extremely sharp. I like the feel of this yarn. When washed it reminds me of a comfy sweatshirt!
