We wanted to get in touch regarding some changes that we will be making to the Rowan range for Autumn Winter 2016. You may have heard some scraps of information alongside some rumours, so we wanted to bring you the official, latest news straight from the Rowan team.
We are very excited to move forward in a way which we see as a return to our roots and a way that originally enabled us to become the design focussed team that we are today. Although we will be reducing the size of our overall range, this decision was taken so that we can better concentrate on our yarn favourites such as Kidsilk Haze, Felted Tweed and Cocoon to name but a few. August will see the 60th edition of our prided Knitting & Crochet Magazine and we hope that you will be as pleased with the collection as we are. We feel that the 43 pieces represent everything true to Rowan over the past 38 years. To celebrate, we will be holding a special anniversary event with Kaffe Fassett in Hertfordshire – watch out on knitrowan for further updates in our news area!
We continue to have the pleasure of working with all of the designer names most associated with Rowan, including Kaffe Fassett, Martin Storey, Sarah Hatton and Lisa Richardson. You can see how all these much loved names have combined to make our anniversary issue a very special one by taking a look at our exclusive sneak peek video.
Alongside our celebrated bi-annual magazine, we will also be bringing you a brand new concept, Rowan Selects. In order to do this, we have listened to feedback from our customers. You have told us that you would like to have the chance to buy new and exciting knitting products throughout the year, so we will be bringing you a selection of limited edition yarns supported by free pattern brochures. In the first phase, there will be a Fine Silk, Cashmere and a beautiful roving yarn, so keep your eyes peeled. We hope that these new offerings will create a sense of anticipation for knitters and crocheters globally. Your local yarn stores will have all the information shortly if they haven’t already.
Thank you for taking the time to read about our latest news. We hope that you are looking forward to continuing on our journey together with us over the next sixty Knitting & Crochet Magazines.
