Knitting lace with Rowan Felted Tweed.

Jane and Mary modeling their lacy Rowan Felted Tweed

I wore my just-finished Jane Eyre shawl (knit from the Wandering the Moor pattern) to the shop last week and Jane told me she'd also used Rowan Felted Tweed for her Sampler Scarf (not a great link - but we have the pattern in the shop)... and Lydia told me she's queue'd Springtime Bandit to use a leftover 1-1/2 balls of Rowan Felted Tweed.

Do you see the trend here?

Rowan Felted Tweed makes lovely lacey shawls and scarves! I know we're not the first ones to figure this out. Ravelry shows 19 pages of "shawl/wraps" knit from Rowan Felted Tweed.

The yardage is generous (191 yards per ball), so many of these projects would take just two or three balls. Ishbel is especially nice - and a very fun knit! - and the small version takes only two balls.

We have all the (more than 12!!) colors of Rowan Felted Tweed in stock.  Many of those colors were shy about posing for a photo (maybe because I had them all laid out on the floor?)
...but these few, they cooperated...once I had them back on the shelf!

  1. this is very helpful, ideas beyond sweaters, and a great way to highlight the yarn. love the orange in the top bin under the red-and the grey's pretty, and the pink, and the . .
