Felted Tweed has been a longtime favorite among Fair-Isle Knitters due to its light DK weight and beautiful tweed effect. Rowan is excited to add this long gradient version made of the same glorious fibers, but with a slow color change designed by none other than Kaffe Fassett!
Inspired by nature’s landscapes, the varying shades of Felted Tweed Colour are truly captivating to knit and crochet. From subtle moorland russets and browns, to vibrant sunset pinks and fresh, grassy greens, the tweedy hues gradually evolve along the fibers at a gentle and unhurried pace. A stunning fair isle effect is created by simply working with two shades, while the perfect combination of 50% lightly-felted wool, 25% viscose and 25% alpaca makes this yarn equally ideal for delicate lace and sumptuous cables.

About Rowan - The name Rowan was inspired by the beautiful shrubs lining the banks of the river Holme in Yorkshire, an area deeply entwined in textile heritage and tradition. Established in 1978, we started life near Huddersfield but eventually moved to a traditional former textile mill nearby. The founders Stephen Sheard and Simon Cockin wanted to produce knitting yarns, which were both quality and perfect for the design trends of the time, showcasing an array of natural fibers in a paintbox color palette. They placed the utmost value on providing yarn shades which could be translated into timeless design, and these values are still at the core of Rowan today.
