If you’re on the Colourway mailing list, you’ll have seen the notice about the end of the Jaeger line of yarns that had been sister to Rowan for so many years. (Colourway has marked down the yarns by 25%, and is offering a free Jaeger book with each order of ten balls or more, any kind and colour, as long as it’s Jaeger — they say to include the book in your order and type FREE BOOK in the special delivery instructions box when you order.)
The blow is softened, of course, by the grown of the RYC line. Creatively speaking, I won’t miss Jaeger terribly, although the only RYC yarn that holds any attraction for me is their Silk Wool DK. I’m just sorry to see the end of venerated brands.
