These are then carded to make regenerated fibre, which is then spun into this beautiful, high quality yarn, which gives life to new hand knitting designs.  Made in Italy.

This yarn is available online only.

I made a pullover and a cardigan with this yarn and love the drape of both. It is soft recycled yarn which speaks to my green sensibilities. I get compliments every time I wear the sweaters made with this yarn. I plan on purchasing more. The colors are beautiful.

I was very disappointed with this yarn. It was not soft and felt synthetic. I frequently knit with 100% linen yarns and am used to the stiffness and corseness of linen, but this felt to be synthetic. The first yarn I have ever returned to WEBS.

        Blends greatly with cotton for a fall look. The little flecks of color in it would combine easily with a number of solids.

          I was looking for yarn for a summer sweater and this was perfect. I was also very attracted by the fact that it is recycled material and very good quality.

            This yarn is great for wam weather. I live in the tropics and can wear it on the warmest of days. It is made up of recycled silk, cotton and viscoses. While it is not super soft to work with, it knits up quickly and drapes nicely.
            Since it is recycled there are splashes of colour in each ball which adds to an overall depth of colour. This is subtle enough that it does not detract from stitch definition.

              I am currently knitting a sweater which I have tried several times before and this time seems to be the most successful.

              The yarn is easy to work with and the color blend is beautiful. I can't wait to wear it.

              Comments about Rowan Purelife Revive:

              My initial thought was I hated this yarn. I was all set to send it back. The yarn did in fact feel like string and it hurt my hands to knit until I loosened my grip. After my temper tantrum I washed my scraggly swatch with Dawn soap and conditioned it with a little Suave conditioner. Wow what a differnce. The yarn bloomed a bit and softened. Not super soft but certainly not scratchy - and it draped. I loved how it looked in the sunlight. It's worth trying to figure out how to knit with it. Make a swatch because it grows width wise.

                  I was happy to find this yarn when I ran out of yarn on a shawl I was knitting. It arrived quickly. It also knitted up beautifully and shows the lace pattern perfectly.
