Rowan is an internationally renowned design led luxury handknitting yarn company, whose reputation for inspirational and creative handknit design is unsurpassed, producing two pattern collections a year to support our portfolio of premium yarns.
Rowan is an ethically conscious brand, with an emphasis on creating luxury, premium yarns sourced from organic, natural fibres.
Established in 1978, the aim was to develop colourful weaving yarns. The focus quickly changed to handknit yarns and the rest is history.
Our ethos has always been to inspire and teach people the joy of knitting – whether you’re a beginner or an advanced knitter, we offer an extensive Rowan workshop programme to suit you. Being a design-led handknit yarn company, we produce two seasonal collections a year, along with our acclaimed Rowan Magazine.
