This gorgeous worsted weight yarn comes from Pebble Island, in the Falkland Islands where some of the world’s finest pure merino wool is grown. It is shorn by hand and then spun and dyed in a family-owned mill in Yorkshire. This very special limited quantity yarn is fully traceable, responsibly farmed, and 100% pure, non-superwash Merino. The colour palette, developed by Erika Knight is inspired by the natural stones and indigenous flora and fauna found on Pebble Island. This exceptional yarn is natural, renewable, biodegradable, breathable, hypoallergenic, resilient and elastic, making it comfortable both to knit with and to wear.
Rowan was established in 1978 above a grocery shop in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire and initially specialised in weaving supplies and knitting kits. The company later started to produce high quality yarns to cater to the blossoming hand knitting trend.
Today, Rowan works with some of the best designers in the world including Lisa Richardson, Martin Storey, Erika Knight and more. Their mission is to offer a selection of high-quality yarns paired with designer-led inspiration that their followers will find a pleasure to knit with and to wear.
