Brushed Fleece

Brushed Fleece Lune Sweater

“Lune” by Martin Storey in Rowan Brushed Fleece

When the Rowan Brushed Fleece arrived in the shop with it’s accompanying sample sweater, we all loved the feel of this merino alpaca blend, and admired Rowan’s patterns for both men and women to show off this soft bulky weight yarn.  But then Dawn started the Spiral Pullover, and Jackie brought in the Harwood coat she is working on. We realized how beautifully this yarn knits up in cables and stitch patterns.  While it’s a great choice for hats and scarves, this yarn will create a warm and cozy sweater fast enough to wear this winter!
