I used this yarn to knit a 6" stuffed animal modeled after a Brussels Griffin Dog. The color and weight were perfect for the doll. When trying to tighten some matress stitching I did, I tore the yarn, so it needed to be used more delicately. Once knit, it holds durably. I was very pleased with this yarn overall.

I purchased one ball of Felted Tweed to add to a bag of the same yarn I already had in my stash from 2007, in order to complete a sweater. I did not expect a matching dyelot and planned around that, but I was surprised at the very great difference in yarn quality. The current Felted Tweed from Rowan is inferior to the previous Rowan yarn of the same name-- in grist, depth of color and in the robustness of the quality of the component fibers--wool, alpaca and rayon--with the wool being the likeliest suspect. Clearly in the past 6 years they have changed mills, possibly for economic reasons. Nobody's fault but I would not use this yarn again. It's not nearly as much fun to knit with and the resulting limp and dullish sweaters are no longer the quality I got spoiled with.

I would buy this yarn again

About Me Collector, Enthusiast, Parent

Pros

  • Colors Are So Beautiful

Cons

  • Just A Little Coarse

Best Uses

  • Airy Shawl

Comments about Rowan Felted Tweed:

I'm knitting a shawl for the late summer and early fall weather. This has just the right amount of weight to it and drapes well with my pattern. I like very natural looking colors and since my shawl has 4 colors they all blend just beautifully. My yarn shop does not carry much of it anymore so I ordered from you. Thank you for carrying it.

        I love this yarn. This is the yarn I opt to use often because it's so soft and versatile and a delight to handle. The DK weight is perfect for a variety of projects. Great for cables and intarsia.

          Comments about Rowan Felted Tweed:

          It holds its shape nicely, so it's forgiving when you drop a stitch. It's a bit sticky to unravel if you need to rip out a good bit. Nice to work with- it's got the warmth and toughness of wool, but feels soft enough not to irritate your hands while you knit. The colors are gorgeous! Great for fair aisle work! (I ended up doubling the yarn because I wanted mine really warm).

            Comments about Rowan Felted Tweed:

            The yarn is splendid! Great color, texture, and very easy to knit with. My only trouble is that the batch I received is definitely not DK weight yarn, more akin to fingering. Was going to use it to knit a hat for a friend, but it's too thin, so I'll just use some other yarn and keep this stuff to myself. Should be perfect for a lace scarf or pair of gloves.
