eBay Store Update: Rowan Yarns Pattern Books and A Life-Long Love Affair


Rowan Yarns is legendary for not only their amazing, diverse yarn lines but their pattern support with their stunning pattern books and magazines for over 30 years.  Rowan has drastically changed how knitting and pattern publishing are done.  Rowan Yarns was the first knitting company to give designers credit for their designs.  Prior to Rowan, knitting patterns were published anonymously in women’s magazines, tucked in the back at the very end of the magazine.

Based in Yorkshire, England, Rowan Yarns has published the who’s-who of knitting designers: Kaffe Fassett, Brandon Mably, Sarah Hatton, Marie Wallin, Louisa Harding, and Kim Hargreaves to name just a few of the many internationally famous designers that have worked with Rowan over the years.  Twice a year, Rowan releases their knitting magazine, highlighting stunning patterns that look like they belong in the art gallery.  Each magazine features stunning photographs of the patterns in the beautiful English countryside alongside articles on knitting history, knitting techniques and featured articles about different fiber animal breeds/species.  Every issue is a treasure trove of knitting knowledge and inspiration.

Highlights of Rowan Magazine over the years include just about any Kaffe Fasset pattern, with brilliantly colored knits in an artist’s pallet in many of the first issues, Kim Hargreaves’ long flowing coats, Marie Wallin’s Raphel in Issue 44.  I personally fell in love with Rowan after seeing’s Kim Hargreaves’ Red Hot from Issue 33 on the Wendy Knits blog.


That one pattern started a life-long quest to collect each of the Rowan Knitting Magazines.  I’m nearly there, missing only the coveted and rare, Issue 4.  One day, I will find this holy grail within my budget.

In the meantime, I hope to share my undying love for this English knitting company with other knitters.  The Teton Knitting Company eBay Shop is overflowing with Rowan Knitting Magazines, Rowan Studio pattern books and yarn specific pattern books.  Find page after page of inspiration in these books from classic knitting patterns to runway inspired looks and everything in between.  You won’t be disappointed and your knitting life will be richer for the inspiration.

eBay Store Update Friday, April 19, 2019

yqndq5ujrfemtzjvxuk00a.jpgI’ve updated the Teton Knitting Company eBay Store with a gorgeous selection of Wollmeise Pure Sockenwolle and Wollmeise Twin Sockenwolle.  I’ve gushed about this amazing yarn many times before on this blog.  It’s one my goto sock yarns for knitting shawls, wraps and socks for Mountain Man.

What is there not to love with brilliant, handdyed colors, generous yardage, extra large 150 gram skeins, and a durable 6-ply yarn?  There is a reason why knitters collect this yarn!

I have several harder to find colors available in this update:


Suzanne in Sockenwolle Twin, Mond im 7. Haus in 100% Pure Sockenwolle, and am kalten Polar in 100% Pure Sockenwolle to name just a few.

As always, yarn ships free in the US.  Thank you for your continued business and support!

ebay Shop Update: April 6, 2019


The Teton Knitting Company eBay Shop has been updated with bright colors of Blue Moon Fiber Arts, Handmaiden, Wollmeise, Fleece Artist and Cascade Yarns just in time for spring and summer knitting projects.

Blue Moon Fiber Arts has been one of my favorite sock yarn handdyers for years now.  Tina of Blue Moon Fiber Arts never ceases to amaze with a never-ending rainbow of colors that come from her dye fingers.  Just when you do not think she can come up with any new dye tricks, she surprises you!  Knitters swear that the tight twist of Socks That Rock adds to spring to the steps of anyone given a pair of socks knitted out of this yarn.

ebedp9qprciswosfh7apw.jpgFor sheer amazing color with great yardage so you never have to fear about do you have enough yarn to make socks for Bigfoot, Wollmeise Twin is one of my go to favorites sock yarns and the Lace-Garn is one of my favorite lace yarns.  Claudia of Wollmeise dyes brilliant, intense color ways from her home in Germany.  An amazing durable 6-ply (yes, you read right, 6-ply) sock yarn is also perfect for wraps and even sweaters.


The ladies of Handmaiden/Fleece Artist dye stunning handprinted yarns from a variety of unique yarn bases.  Just look at this skein of Lace Silk in Blackberry.  The colors are so bright and ripe that you want to eat it!

So visit our eBay store to find the yarn for your next spring project!
