Yarns We Love: Rowan

We have some exciting news! This Friday (November 10th), we are going to be joined in our Edinburgh shop by Rowan’s own Addy Osborne.  Addy is bringing all sorts of garments, goodies, books, and yarn with her and will be doing a trunk show here in the shop to allow all of our Edinburgh customers to try out yarns from Rowan’s stunning Autumn Winter 2017/18 range.  To celebrate, we’ve got some lovely Rowan yarn and booklets to give away!


Our top prize is a pack of 10 balls of beautiful Rowan Brushed Fleece shade 260 Nook and a copy of Brushed Fleece Knits.  Two runners up will also receive a copy of the booklet.  All you need to do to take part is to get in touch and tell us what you like best about Rowan.  Send us your entry to sales@mcadirect.com before midnight on Friday 17th November, 2017.  Winners will be selected by Rowan.





In anticipation of the event, we chatted to staff at our Edinburgh shop and office about what they like best about Rowan.  Here’s what they said...


The quality of Rowan’s yarns is what stands out for me. As a Design Consultant, I spend a lot of my day advising people on their knitting and crochet projects. I know that the high content of natural fibres in Rowan's yarns will always give a beautiful finish to a project.

What's good about Rowan? They make me want to live in a lighthouse with a sheepdog and wear cable knit jumpers all the time.

I like the huge range of shades and textures available in Rowan yarns, and the timeless nature of the beautiful, cosy patterns in the Rowan Magazines.
