This buttery soft yarn is made up of gently-plied 100% cashmere for a caressable feel and excellent stitch definition in lace or cables. Produced for Rowan by Todd & Duncan of Scotland, the pure and soft Scottish water of Loch Leven in Kinross is essential to the feel and the look of this cashmere.
Scottish-spun cashmere is world-renowned. The ‘Scottish handle’ is more robust off the shelf, but soon blossoms. Wet-blocking or steam-blocking your knitted or crocheted pieces allows this yarn to reach its optimal softness.
This yarn is featured in the 11-pattern collection Pure Cashmere by Lisa Richardson, which includes timeless investment garments as well as cheery single-skein accessories. View pattern images and specifications, or purchase individual patterns as PDFs, on Ravelry or the Rowan website.
