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.

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.

Unique and fun yarn - doesn't split!

By Bronwyn

from Palm Springs, CA

Pros

  • Cottony soft
  • Doesn't pool
  • Good Quality
  • Great Colors
  • No knots
  • Not splitty
  • yardage

Cons

  • Handwash only
  • Price

Best Uses

  • Bags
  • Men's items
  • Sweaters

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!
