Rowan have reintroduced their Denim yarn for Spring 2014l. This is shade #02, Nashville which is a dark denim blue.
Denim will shrink on the first wash and so, if you are not using a Rowan pattern, you must make allowances for this. Rowan patterns have the shrinkage built into the design.
This is a robust yarn that can be machine washed - no need for any tender loving care!!
