Righteous Rowan Related News
What started out as an ordinary day at the Sheep (knitting, chatting about knitting, helping folks with knitting related problems and questions...) quickly took an exciting turn when my favourite UPS guy lumbered through our door with these rather large boxes. Large boxes are always a good sign at the Sheep; the larger the box the more yarn it generally contains!
Inside these specific boxes was something so exciting that I had to take photos throughout the unwrapping process, just to stretch things out as far as I could. These wonderful magical boxes contained bags upon bags of Rowan Yarns!
We've all been waiting with baited breath for our fall delivery from Rowan, and today it finally arrived! Amongst the many beautiful new yarns that are gracing our shelves at the moment is the brand new (and very exciting) Rowan Purelife Organic Wool! This 100% organic wool is a DK weight yarn that'll get you 125 meters of knitting pleasure for just $13.95. This yarn is dyed with low impact, all-natural plant dyes. For those of you out there looking for an eco-friendly yarn, it doesn't get much better than this!
We are stocking the complete range of eight colours at the Sheep, and this photo does not do them justice, so come have a look for yourself!
Alongside Rowan Purelife came Felted Tweed (pictured left), Little Big Wool, Cocoon, and Kidsilk Haze! And as a lace addict I can say that I am very happy to see our Kidsilk shelves refreshed (the colours are beautiful!) My mind is already racing with new project ideas!
