We’ve been experimenting with the Rowan Thick ‘n’ Thin yarns to make textured knits for the autumn months! The varying thickness of the yarn creates a unique effect, perfect for all of your knitted garments and accessories.

Rowan Thick 'n' ThinThe Rowan Thick ‘n’ Thin yarn varies in thickness creating a natural texture in your knitting as you go. The yarn is really easy to work with and the finished result is an unusual but beautiful piece of knitting.

The colours are all wonderfully rich and tempting, from deep purple, burgundy and navy to earthy shades of moss green, amber and sky blue. There are variegated yarns in a range of colours, like Pumice and Basalt, as well as plainer colours woven with black to accentuate the textured effect, like Soapstone and Flint. This stylish ‘Orbit’ hat (from the Rowan Thick ‘n’ Thin pattern book) has been made using Marble, which is a colour that’s set to be on trend this autumn!
