Diane is here with her second yarn review of Rowan’s 2014 Fall/Winter line. She thoroughly enjoyed knitting with this sumptuous cashmere blend, Finest.
Rowan Finest is an extra-fine merino (50%), cashmere (20%) and alpaca (30%) fingering weight blend – what a wonderful combination! It is sure to become a favorite luxury yarn for fine handknits. The resulting fabric is so wonderfully soft with excellent stitch definition. I recommend using pointy needles with this yarn since the yarn is so delicate. Finest is available in twelve beautiful colors. The Rowan Finest book has vintage inspired patterns designed by Sarah Hatton using this decadent yarn. An item made from Rowan Finest is truly something special. We can’t wait to see what you make!
