Rowan Summer Tweed
If you love tweediness, but you can't wear wool, Rowan Summer Tweed is a dream come true. This mix of raw silk and cotton has a crisp, dry hand and a rustic texture that makes it perfect for all climates and seasons. Here in the northwest, where even the summers are a little damp, we like to cozy it up it with Rowan's Kidsilk Haze (see our Shoulder Cozy)–but all on its own it makes a heavenly sweater.
