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 current Rowan handknitting range, allowing us to dispatch your orders quickly to you. Please see our Rowan stock list.
