    • Beautiful colors
    • Doesn't snag
    • Soft
    • WIDE color range

    Cons

    • Low Tensile Strength Unit

    Best Uses

    • Colorwork

    Comments about Rowan Fine Tweed:

    I am making the Soumak wrap from Rowan book #54. Absolutely lovely!Yarn flows off the needles; just don't yank it. It breaks easily.

    Service and delivery comments:

    As always, WEBS service was top notch. Yarn came overnight. I had to send a few balls back , because there was a mistake in pattern quantities. WEBS took care of it for me.

    rustic looking

    By Viola Knitter

    from Utah

    See all my reviews

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Beautiful colors

    Cons

    • Breaks easily
    • One-ply

    Best Uses

      Comments about Rowan Fine Tweed:

      I used this yarn for a stranded hat with a pom-pom. It turned out beautifully. The thick thin nature of the yarn makes the stitches rustic looking (good in this case, my son likes it). The thick thin nature of the one-ply yarn also made it weak in spots. I think it will be okay as a garment, but when I was knitting it did break a couple of times. I would be concerned using it for a sweater (elbow wear) and would never use it for socks or something that needed more oomph. I would choose a yarn that had more plies. The tweed look is beautiful.

      Avoid this one

      By achyrelle

      from Texas

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Rowan Fine Tweed:

      Terrible yarn. It is nice in appearance and when worked up... but it looses ALL value to a knitter because it is dry, fragile, and extremely prone to breaking. The last thing a knitter wants to do is work hours on a project to have her yarn break, midstitch. The yarn is extremely uneven and poorly constructed. Would never repurchase or recommend to anyone that likes his/her sanity.

      Interesting Texture

      By R

      from Everett WA

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Saturated Colors

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Comments about Rowan Fine Tweed:

          Purchased to make a sweater, not yet started. Was a bit surprised by the texture of the yarn, not quite as soft as I expected, but still lovely. Can tell it will knit up beautifully. Customer service was exemplary. I had a rather large order and it arrived within just a few days, was complete and exactly as ordered. Looking forward to shopping this site again.
