              soft in both color and texture, this is a wonderful choice for hats and scarves, and i used mine to create a cozy shawl.

                  Product came swiftly-I used more up on the first item than I thought so I bought the last 4 balls. I made a "Sleevie Wonder" and it is sooo soft and cuddly.

                        I never really need yarn but Rowan yarn at a great price is too good to pass up. I started the sweater and love working with this yarn.

                          I had hoped for an indoor vest, but this yarn is so dense that I will use it as an outdoor vest in the fall. I may make the pattern again in a worsted weight yarn for indoor wear.

                          Comments about Rowan Tweed Aran:

                          Wwe were at WEBS and my husband was bemoaning that he wanted a tweed yarn similar to a sweater he used to have. The sales associate heard him and told him to look on a particular shelf and there it was. The only issue is that it says 4.25-4.75 st/inch and it knit at 4/inch, on a size 7. There were no knots in the 13 balls that I used and no weak spots. It is a single ply yarn and you do need to be aware of that. It made a very warm sweater.

                          Yarn quality is poor.

                              I knitted an entire sweater. As I was knitting a hood together with the Kitchener stitch the yarn frayed and had to knot to proceed. This happened in several other places which I could work, but the hood was not easy. In addition each skein had several breaks where it was knotted together. Lots of ends to manage.
                              Not happy!

                                    I am knitting the Rowan Gwendoline sweater and this yarn is just beautiful to work with. It's a single ply tweed, and you need to take care if you need to rip as it can break. But this yarn has a wonderful hand with a lot of body and I would definitely use it again.
