Lenpur.... Lenpur.... Hmm... a city in India? An Island in the Pacific? A Middle Eastern kingdom? Some place described in the Bible? Lenpur is a man-made fiber that is created from the branches of certain trees. That's right. It comes from wood cellulose that is used to produce an amazingly soft and fabulicious yarn. The sheen on this stuff is amazing! Combine this interesting fiber with linen (another plant fiber), and you get Rowan Lenpur Linen! All made from completely renewable resources. Fantastic! And, with the warmer temps approaching, this is something that you're going to be interested in for sure. It's a light-weight yarn perfect for our climate. Consider it for your next project! Lenpur Linen. Wow!
Rowan fans: if Lenpur weren't enough, here's something else! The Rowan Magazine #47 is in stock now. Come pick up your copy today -- all spring and summer fashions (mostly women's. Sorry fellas, but as a consolation, there ARE 3 cotton sweaters in there for us bearded types who look not-so-dainty in Kid Silk Haze).
Speaking of the hazy, a couple new colors of Kid Silk Haze are here -- spiffy spring colors for happy projects. "You got that Denim, Jason?" Sure do. Light and Dark Blue (Memphis and Nashville) and the White (Ecru). Rowan Denim is jeans in yarn form. It's a great material. Look this week for what's new from Plymouth! Must be spring!
