my submission to the Pure Wool Worsted Home Decor Online Collection 
- see all of the designs by the Rowan Ambassadors here!


Rowan's new Pure Wool Worsted yarn is arriving in yarn stores now.  It's available in 50 shades!  Each 100 gram ball is approx. 200m (219 yards) and is 100% wool and it's super wash!


Rowan is rolling out this yarn in a big way!

Martin Storey and Kate Buller planning the Afghan Knit-a-Long


AND, I think this is Rowan's first ever Knit-a-Long!!!!  Announced in the January Row@n eNewsletter, the Martin Storey - Afghan Pure Wool Worsted Knit-a-long has been delayed until March!  This is to allow everyone to have time to get prepared - it is taking a while for this new yarn to reach your LYS's.


********************


As a Rowan Ambassador, Rowan sends me their latest design books and sample balls of their new yarns.  All opinions on this blog are my own!


Rowan has put a lot of thought into this new yarn.  With an initial offering of 50 shades, two design booklets, an on-line collection (or two), and their first ever Knit-a-Long, well, I had to take a good look at this yarn.

What do I think of Rowan's Pure Wool Worsted?  Well, I have to say that I enjoyed knitting with this yarn.  It is soft and squishy....I think it would make LOVELY cables.  The colours are beautiful - and with 50 shades, there has to be a shade or two for everyone!

Although I'm not a big fan of super-wash yarns, I can see their practicality.  Not everyone has time to hand wash, lay flat to dry......

I like it!  So much that I am going to participate in the Knit-a-Long.  I look forward to having a cozy afghan to snuggle up on the couch with....

So 'til next time, Happy Knitting!
