Rowan Cosy Merino
The Rowan Cosy Merino blends pure Merino wool, cashmere and yak for the ultimate luxury feel. The blend of fibres reduces the static found in synthetic boucles, so the finished product is less likely to cling to your body while remaining warm and lightweight. The finish is ideal for textured stitches, but it also works perfectly in a simple stocking stitch for a vintage look.
