Felted Tweed Has Returned

Several of us are thrilled to welcome Rowan Felted Tweed back in full force. Look at that tweedy beauty. Our stock of this lovely stuff has waxed and waned over the years, but I'm very glad to see it again.
It's a wool and alpaca blend, with a little viscose for durability, and the drape on this stuff is amazing. Your finished knit will be soft, warm, and flowy. Just right for a warm but light layer. And the colors...well, just gorgeous.
The new pattern book for Felted Tweed is pretty killer, too. Yokes, cables, colorwork...all the classic stuff. Take a look at some of my favorites.

If you love Rowan yarns and patterns like we do, I hope this new haul makes you happy, too!

P.S. Remember the post about my Ravelry favorites? This gorgeous striped sweater was knit with all kinds of Felted Tweed shades!
