Yarn Pr0n!


Today's Yarn Pr0n Friday is brought to you by our friends at Rowan. More specifically, Rowan Tapestry in Color 177 (Lead Mine).

















This is a blend of 70% wool and 30% soybean protein fiber. How is yarn spun from soybean fiber? Beats me. But I was interested in testing it out. I think I'll probably turn these into some fingerless gloves at some point.

You know, I've wondered about the soybean fiber myself. Maybe they use the little hairs from the stem. ;P Grey is a good color. I bet that yarn is nice and soft!

I'll be interested in what you think of the soybean after you knit with it. It is so interesting to see all the things they can spin into yarn!

Lovely colorway! I've used Paton's soy yarn and it was very nice and soft. I'm sure your Rowan will be even better.
