 Product reviewed: Rowan - Pima Cotton DK
I grabbed the last of the Citronella when it was up on WW, and cast on for Jared Flood's Girasole as soon as I got my box in the mail. The texture, sheen, and very subtle heathering of the yarn makes for a beautiful finished object, but the yarn is rather splitty when knit (of course, I consider that normal for a cotton yarn). It is loosely plied with 10 plies of 2 plies each, and it's not hard to accidentally drop/miss one, due to the rather low twist (the lack of twist probably helps with the sheen and softness, come to think of it). No idea how it holds up in the wash yet, but I'll report back!
