We are delighted, as a Rowan Flagship Store, to announce the arrival of the brand new Rowan yarn Moordale to Oxford Yarn Store.
Moordale is a premium blend of the finest British wool and British Alpaca. The fine micron wool and the soft to the touch Alpaca give this yarn a robust but tender feel. Available in a pallete of 12 complimentary shades ideal for colourwork, but equally the knitted fabric, using a single shade is special enough to make a favourite piece of knitwear.
Moordale is 70% wool and 30% alpaca and knits to 23 stitches and 30 rows on 4mm needles. A 100 gram hank gives 230 meters.
To accompany Moordale, Rowan have published The Moordale Collection which features 14 designs for men and women by one of Rowan's favourite knitwear designers Martin Storey.
