Established in 1978 near Huddersfield, West Yorkshire by founders Stephen Sheard and Simon Cockin

Initially specialising in weaving supplies and knitting kits, they wanted to produce yarn which was both high quality and perfect for the hand-knitting design trends of the time.

Their business focus was to showcase natural fibres in a paint-box colour palette, and so Lightweight DK was born with 98 shades.

Rowan specialises in working with a roster of talented designers including Lisa Richardson, Martin Storey, Erika Knight, Brandon Mably, ARNE & CARLOS, Quail Studio, and Georgia Farrell.
