A hard wearing and practical cotton yarn that fades and ages with washing and wearing. Rowan Original Denim is indigo dyed on the surface, leaving a white core. Colour loss takes place during the first wash when all the loose dye is washed out exposing the core. The knitted pieces also shrink in length during the first wash, tightening the knitting and adding emphasis to cables and texture giving the finished garment its unique look. It is important that you follow a pattern which includes allowances made for shrinkage.
