STEPHEN SHEARD AND SIMON COCKIN launched rowan in 1978, selling weaving kits at craft markets around the UK. Now, over 20 years later, the company's knitting yarns, patterns and magazines are available around the world.
Rowan's strength has been to develop itself and adhere to constantly changing trends. Listening to its customers and working closely with leading designers has been rowan's principal aim since the company's beginning.
Rowan, known as the designers' yarn company, produces not only traditionally spun worsted wool yarns which are dyed to over 300 colours, but specially designed tweeds, cotton chenilles, and other classic cottons.
