More Rowan

A little more Rowan for you?
The Kidsilk Haze is always popular, and we have more in the shop.  We have also welcomed Kidsilk Haze Eclipse, the sparkly version of the old favorite, and Kidsilk Haze Stripe, a self-patterning version with double the yardage of the original.  
These are all amazing for scarves, shawls, sweaters...many knitters will hold a strand along with another yarn to add some textural interest.  There are so many version to choose from now.
Speaking of haze, say hello to Angora Haze.  It is softer than you can bunnies made of clouds.  For me, an angora sweater conjures visions of dressing up for the holidays.  There is also a certain vintage flair to an angora sweater, like this sweet little thing at the shop.  Pink, lacey, fluffy, vintage...
In fact, the Angora Haze book is full of pretty things.

Autumn Knits is gorgeous, too.
We have a sample of Ashbourne in the shop, knit up in the luxurious Lima.
Look at these beautiful shapes and textures, knit up in Cocoon and Lima.

Finally, we have the new Rowan Fine Art sock yarn in the six newest and more subtle colorways.  With the more subtle color variation, these would be lovely for lacework...elm is my favorite.  This would be perfect for that RCYC Mystery KAL/CAL.
I think that's most of the new Rowan...stay tuned for Malabrigo!
