Rowan Original Denim


Yarn TypeKnits to Rowan Denim Indigo Dye Cotton DK.
A practical and hard wearing yarn. Rowan Original Denim is a 100% pure cotton.
It is important that you use a Rowan Denim pattern, where allowances have been made for shrinkage. Because the dye is only surface dye, during knitting the colour will come off onto your hands. Rowan Denim, as with other indigo dye textiles, fades and ages with washing and wearing. Most of the colour loss takes place during the first wash when all the loose dye is washed out exposing the core. The knitted pieces will also shrink in length during the first wash. This tightens the knitting adding emphasis to cables and texture giving the finished garment its unique look. Machine washable at 60 C.
