About Us Colourway was the first shop in London ever to specialise in Rowan Yarns and we have enjoyed a very close relationship with that company and its designers since we started more than fifteen years ago. In addition we now also stock yarns and books by Debbie Bliss who has production values very similar to those of Rowan Yarns, for whom she used to design.
