    My first sweater 10 years ago is of Kid Classic, and it has worn unbelievably well. Barely pilled (even under the arms!), held it's shape despite rough treatment. Rowan #28 has a ton of patterns as does A Season's Tale (I think).

    This line offers a great range of colors so I was considering knitting a Fair Isle sweater coat with it. But I just don't like the yarn that much -- the mohair content is slightly irritating to my skin (I'm not allergic, but I do admit I have very sensitive skin.) Also the colors are VERY earthy, more so than shown on color chips. HOWEVER the mohair content would DEFINITELY make this a great yarn for outerwear -- hats, scarves & gloves/mittens for a cold winter season. You'd get very warm garments without a lot of bulk. There are SO MANY Rowan yarns I like better than Kid Classic, even LOVE -- for example, Kidsilk Haze, which is miraculously beautiful in my opinion and justifiably one of the great perennial classics of the industry. PLUS Rowan now makes a coordinating Kidsilk Haze ruffle yarn that's amazing for trimming (I wish they made it in every Kidsilk Haze colorway!)

              This soft, cozy yarn works beautifully for textured (knit/purl designs) knitting and cables. It's lightweight and lovely. And the colors are wonderful.

                Just received 20 skeins of Nightly color I will knit for a sweater jacket. This is a great color! Midnight blue/ dark violet. Exactly what I wanted though pic doesn't do it justice. Knits up a bit lighter than worsted, needed size 7 straights to get gauge on a pattern that calls for 8's which is strange b/c it's a Rowan pattern! I usually knit right on pattern needles size. . , Anyway, the texture is perfect for a sweater jacket. Only 4 of 5 stars because haven't knit project yet.
