Knitting Rumor Mill: Is Rowan Discontinuing Calmer?

rowancalmerSay it ain't so!!! According to Amy Singer of Knitty.com and No Sheep For You fame Rowan will be discontinuing the delicious cottony stretch yarn that is Calmer! Amy has long been allergic to wool and has used this as a substitute for many a pattern. As such, she has put forth a petition. Yes, a petition. A petition to encourage Rowan to keep Calmer in their line of yarns.

Watch out, soon we'll be Occupying Rowan!

Have you knit with Rowan Calmer? Are you sad to see it go? Tell us all about it in the comments.

Calmer is a wonderful yarn! Fantastic for kids sweaters. I'm sorry to hear that Rowan is ending production. I think they priced the yarn a bit high & doomed it from the start. I hope they reconsider.

Yeah the price was a bit high and that was keeping me from buying as well. There are some projects that I've really wanted to knit with it. Calmer is on sale at webs.com but I won't be able to afford it for a while and by then it's likely to sell out :(

I'm knitting. I've been caring for my two sons, living at my MIL's house, volunteering at our local co-op preschool and gardening. Trying to find time to write and to redefine this blog to embrace my current reality.
