Simple Shapes

Simple Shapes Summerpsun & Purelife Revive is another magazine coming from Rowan for spring. The yarns and magazines should be in the store by the end of January.

The brochure features 8 easy to wear garments designed by Sarah Hatton.

The yarns used are interchangeable for all the patterns which make the most of the beautiful texture of each yarn.

The collection features elegant fitted tops and waistcoats to loose fitting tops and cardigans.

Purelife revive is our wonderful tweed effect, fully recycled summer yarn. It has a beautiful rusticity. 
Summerspun is a beautiful yarn in a 50% Merino Wool and 50% Cotton blend. The yarn is made by twisting a printed cotton end and a melange wool end together, resulting in a wonderful subtle striping effect. Summerspun is a joy to knit and crochet.
I have knit with Summerspun and really like the yarn. I haven't knit with Revive yet but Spelt looks really nice. I think it will work great into my spring/summer wardrobe.
