Rowan released a brand new yarn for this season, Angora Haze. Available in a range of gorgeous shades from palest white, through soft pastels, to rich black – there is sure to be a shade to suit every taste. As you would expect from a premium Angora fibre, the yarn is unbelievably soft and, at a generous 137 m, you can get a good amount of life from a ball.
Here’s a quick overview of the available shades:
To accompany this delightful new yarn is the Angora Haze Collection, full of luxurious knits to make the most of the softness this fibre provides. Here are a few highlights from the collection, but be sure to check out the whole range on Rowan’s website.
If you have any concerns about how Rowan obtain their Angora fibres, there is more information available online about the methods they use which clarifies that all the rabbits are live and cared for during the process.
I was lucky enough to be sent two balls of Angora Haze to review along with the pattern brochure, but unfortunately I am slightly allergic to Angora so I can’t work with it or wear it. This is good luck for my readers though, as I am giving away the whole Angora Haze package to one lucky person! The prize is one copy of the Angora Haze Collection brochure, one ball of Angora Haze in shade Hug 524, one ball of Angora Haze in shade Embrace 526.
To enter, simply comment below with what you love about Angora yarn generally, Angora Haze specifically or the Angora Haze Collection. Entries close at midnight on Sunday 24th November and the winner will be chosen at random from all the comments received on this post up until that point.

Recently I posted about receiving a skein of the gorgeous new Rowan Fine Art sock yarn for review. The colourway I received is Serin (301) which is a stunning colour combination, but doesn’t really suit my personal tastes.
I couldn’t decide what to do with the yarn initially, but I really want to knit something because it looks wonderful to work with. After some thought, here is the plan: I will knit a pair of socks using this skein and one lucky reader of my blog can win them!
There are three sock patterns in the Fine Art Collection which only require one skein, so the winner can choose which of these three designs they would like me to make for them. To enter, all you need to do is comment below with which of these designs you would like me to make for you if you win.
Note: The Goose pattern offers both ankle and knee length. The ankle length version is on offer as a prize draw option, but the photo features the knee length and this is offered for illustration purposes only.
Please note that all three patterns are ladies UK sizes 4-7.
Entries close at midnight (UK time) on Sunday 19th May, after which the winner will be drawn at random. Good luck!
