With a continuing trend for natural fibres, yarns are light and fluffy, warm and airy or dense including matted, scrubbed, hairy and primitive. The heavily textured fabrics are infused with cashmere, baby alpaca, kid mohair and silk to create beautifully soft textured fabrics. Traditionally British fabrics such as tweeds, checks, tartans, fairisle and plaids are used as well as chunky structured cables in soft rounded and felted yarns completing the traditional craft inspired look. These trends are reflected in the following 3 stories, Heritage, Shadowland and Folklore.

Featured Yarns:
Big Wool, Cocoon, Pure Wool 4 Ply, Pure Wool Aran, Shimmer, Wool Cotton, Kidsilk Haze, Kid Classic, Kidsilk Aura, Felted Tweed, Felted Tweed Aran, Felted Tweed Chunky.

Story 2 - Shadowlands Set in one of the last working water mills giving the impression of hard times during the industrial revolution. In an era where garments were practical, colours were sombre and every detail served a purpose. Including men’s and womenswear, each garment portrays a sense of warmth and comfort including oversized garments with chunky textures. Colours fit in well with the grey day palette including purple and dusky red tones. Photographed by Moy Williams at Thwaite Mills in Leeds. Styling and art direction by Marie Wallin.

Story 3 - Heritage - Inspired by the privileged classes of the country set in the 1920’s. The collection has eccentric English twist including striped, patterned and lace womenswear designs. The colours contrast the soft greens and greys with the rich purple heather, golds and chestnut. Heritage is shot in the unique arts and crafts country house Voewood in the heart of Norfolk. Shelia Rock photographed this story alongside the art direction and styling of head designer Marie Wallin.

Our staff have had many years experience of working with Rowan yarns. Rowan designs never date but sometimes the colours and qualities that were once the original designs, have to be substituted; we can advise on the nearest shades.

We stock the entire Rowan handknitting range. Please see our Rowan stock list.
