Yarns We Love: Rowan Big Wool Silk

As a novice knitter, I was drawn to the lovely Rowan Big Wool Silk for my first ever project. Being 70% wool and 30% silk, this yarn has a beautiful sheen that gives it a delicate quality, despite being a super chunky weight.

 Big Wool Silk: Perfect for Beginners

My scarf knitted up in no time and it was very satisfying to see such progress as a beginner knitter. The super chunky weight also helped me to avoid and spot any mistakes. It also meant that my stitch movements were very pronounced, allowing me to see exactly what I was doing and understand the structure of the stitches.

I chose the rusty 'Book' shade - a beautiful colour that also looks cosy! I can't wait to show it off on the chilly Edinburgh streets.

 The full range of shades. Clockwise, from top: Journal, Song, Book, Note, Verse, Raffia

I would recommend this yarn to any knitter, but particularly beginners who want to start out with something that will knit fast and still look classy!
