Rosie's Featured Yarn of The Week!

Starting today and continuing throughout the summer, Rosie's will be featuring a different yarn each week, highlighting its properties, uses and special features. As an added bonus to you, we will also offer the yarn at 10% off* for the week that it is featured!

This week we are proud to kick-off with Rowan Pure Life Cotton.

Pure Life Cotton, an organic naturally dyed 2-ply cotton, is part of a new line of yarns from Rowan that are certified by BioRe, (part of the Swiss group Remei), an organization that supports social and environmental practices worldwide. It is the perfect way to incorporate environmental and social consciousness into your summer knitting! Rowan Pure Life Cotton comes in 8 colors, each naturally dyed in very subtle beautiful shades.

Rowan has also put out a pattern booklet, the aptly named organic cotton collection, featuring 18 designs by Marie Wallin. I am particularly enamored with Busy Lizzie (at left):

Knit in 9-11 skeins of Quebracho Bark, it is a perfect sweater for seasonal transitions, breezy summer evenings or to wear in over-airconditioned buildings -- a particular point of annoyance for me!

Yarn Specs:
22 sts and 30 rows = 4"
131 yards per 50g ball
Yarn of the week price: $9.00/skein!

*Both in-store and on-line! Woot!
