Rowan Kidsilk Haze

Ever wanted your own colour in Kidsilk Haze? Now you can!
From now until 31st October Rowan will run a competition to create your own shade in its bestselling yarn Kidsilk Haze.
As Kidsilk Haze becomes a teenager (13 years old in Autumn 2014), all Rowan fans are invited to create their very own shade. Send in a picture of the colour you would like us to replicate, including the background story and suggested shade name.
It may be your favourite holiday sunset, a favourite sweater or bring back a previous shade you adored!
How to enter
Facebook – you can upload your entry, but it must be added to the competition thread and not loose on the page!
Ravelry – we will create a thread on the Rowan Yarns forum. Entries to be posted to this thread only will be considered.
Email – send your entry to:
Post – send your entry to: Rowan Consumer Services, Kidsilk Haze Competition, Green Lane Mill, Holmfirth, HD9 2DX
All entries must include:
• A picture of the shade, this will allow us to match the shade as best as possible. Winning shades will be entered into the Kidsilk Haze range for Autumn Winter 2015 and may become our best seller.
• Some background information on why you selected the image/shade
• A suggested shade name.
• You must title your entry with the category you wish to enter
The Categories
The competition is open to all and winners will be selected within the following categories:
• Best knitters shade
• Best retailers shade
• Most unusual story
The Winners
How many winning shades will there be? – We will select a shortlist of 13 potential winners (as it is 13 years we’re celebrating!), and then select one winner for each category above.
The Winners will not only have the accolade that they have selected a yarn shade for Rowan, but will also receive a pack of their chosen yarn.
All entries to be received by 31st October 2014.
You have to post separately for each category you want to enter.
Affiliated Rowan staff and Ambassadors are not eligible for entry.
Good luck, and once again thank you for joining in our Kidsilk Haze 13th year birthday celebrations.

The Rosette Bag from Lantern Moon.
Lantern Moon took a silk drawstring bag and covered it with tiny rosettes. Great size for small to medium sized projects! 6.5” square base x 9”h
This is our Featured Product for Tuesday, October 7.



I put 3 100 gram balls of sock yarn in the bag and they fit no problem. You could make a 4th ball fit if you wanted to.

What a great Christmas gift for your friends who knit or crochet.

The retail price is $35 and we are offering the bag at 30% off. That's $24.50. 

The discount is not available on the website. In the store or phone orders only. I will be in the store by 10am tomorrow morning and we close at 5:30.

The new colours of Opal Sweet & Spicy 2 arrived today. Yummy!!

There are a few things drying in my bathroom right now. Beth has been busy. Coloured pictures when they're dry.
Beth was flipping through TV channels yesterday afternoon and saw that the new season of Homeland was starting. We almost blew that. The first two episodes were last night. I'm not sure. It was a bit slow. Hopefully they were just setting up for what is going to happen this season.
