                Comments about Rowan Fine Art:

                I am making the Gossamer Jacket by Dovetail Designs in Rowan's Fine Art combined with 1strand of Shibui Pebble to obtain the color and gauge that I want. The fabric glows with gorgeous depth of color yet is subtle. It is light weight, soft and warm and I can hardly wait to wear it. The only problem I encountered with 1 of 3skeins ( Fine Art), 'was that it was tangled....since I always hand roll my yarns it was easily remedied.

                  Lovely yarn

                  Comments about Rowan Fine Art:

                  This yarn is beautiful and knits up into warm, durable socks.

                  I have discovered that I am not fond of mohair (which is included in this blend) but if you like mohair, you'll find it adds an interesting little bit of a fuzzy halo to the knitting.

                  I made a pair of socks using the Waxwing color and have machine washed them turned inside out several times and they've held up well so far.
