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!)

    I love this yarn. I always go back to it for making sweaters since it is lovely to work with. I love the fuzzy texture and although it is not as soft as some other yarns because of the mohair, it has a nice halo.

      I am pleased with the color/dye of the yarn. It sheds a bit but not so much as to be annoying

        I'm making a Kim Hargreaves coat, combining this with Kidsilk Haze. It is knitting
        beautifully. As usual, the service from Webs was perfect. My favorite place to
        Order yarn.

              I am making a sweater from Fresh Fashion Knits as a gift. After swatching 4 different yarns I ordered the Kid Classic the pattern called for. I got the royal which is a soft pretty purple. It is so lightweight and airy. It is knitting up beautifully.

                I bought this yarn to knit up a simple cable cardigan. I have worked with many different types of yarns over the years, and this yarn is more than I expected! It is such a pleasure to work with! It knits up very easily and is incredibly soft. I don't seem to have problems with splitting the fibers and it is easy to see any errors. I plan to find other projects to do with this yarn!
