Description

Ask any Rowan fan for their favourite yarn and there’s a good chance it’ll be Felted Tweed. Spun in a light DK weight, with a beautiful tweed effect and an amazing 50+ colours to choose from, it’s a Fair Isle knitter’s dream. But that’s not all. The magical combination of 50% lightly-felted wool, 25% viscose and 25% alpaca makes it supremely blockable and a gorgeous option for lacework as a result. Or knit it in garter stitch for a drapey, squishable fabric that is cosy, but light and easy to wear. Choose from nature-inspired shades ranging from cool watery tones to warming cherry red and fiery ginger and prepare to fall in love! Now available in special colourways chosen by world-renowned designer Kaffe Fassett.

Tweeds have a long history in the British Isles where there has always been a need for woolen outerwear to keep people warm and dry in the damp climate. From this long heritage, Felted Tweed was born. Like tweed fabrics, this yarn is slightly rustic, but it has an inherent softness that comes from the Merino, and a slightly brushed texture enhanced by the alpaca.

From Fair Isle to cables, there’s no knitting that Rowan Felted Tweed doesn’t make better

The rich, complex colours of Felted Tweed work equally well in modern intarsia, in traditional stranded knitting, on a cabled Aran, or in a simple stocking stitch design. When the yarn is knit, it magically melds into a fabric with a distinctive soft-focus texture, and the multiple hues take on a life of their own. Our designers also love pairing it with Kidsilk Haze for a new and unique fabric.
