Rowan Kid Classic

  • Kid Classic is one of Rowan's oldest and most popular yarns, with more than 10,000 projects on Ravelry. It's a lovely and light blend of kid mohair, wool, and a little polyamide for strength. I like that it makes a wonderfully light and soft fabric, so it's perfect for larger garments or heavily cabled fabric that would feel quite heavy in a different yarn. Kid Classic is featured in several sweaters in the Mode at Rowan line, as well as in most all of the Rowan magazines.

    While Kid Classic is listed as an Aran weight, and the ball band says 18 stitches per 4 inches, I think this is closer to a worsted weight yarn. It does bloom into a lovely fabric after a little warm water bath, but not enough to be used in a design calling for an Aran weight yarn.
