Rowan Felted Tweed Aran



The big sister to classic Felted Tweed, this rustic Aran-weight yarn is available in a range of classic colours and is a beautiful choice for cosy winter knits. The complimentary colours sit perfectly together in stripes of Fair Isle colourwork, or shine on their own in cables and textured stitches. With an alchemic combination of 50% lightly-felted wool, 25% viscose and 25% alpaca, this is a yarn that’s often imitated but never bettered.



Tweeds have a long history in the British Isles where there has always been a need for woolen outerwear to keep people warm and dry in the damp climate. From this long heritage, Felted Tweed, and it’s cousin, Felted Tweed Aran, was born. Like tweed fabrics, this yarn is slightly rustic, but it has an inherent softness that comes from the Merino, and a slightly brushed texture enhanced by the alpaca.

The rich, complex colours of Felted Tweed Aran work equally well in modern intarsia, in traditional stranded knitting, on a cabled Aran, or in a simple stocking stitch design. When the yarn is knit, it magically melds into a fabric with a distinctive soft-focus texture, and the multiple hues take on a life of their own.
