An Aran-weight wool yarn, with a super-light feel, Kid Classic is as unique as it is popular, having been a favourite with Rowan knitters for many years. The beautiful blend of 70% lambswool, 22% kid mohair and 8% polyamide creates a lovely soft yarn, which is perfect for cosy winter knits. Available in a refined colour palette of rich tones, this is a true all-rounder, which is as perfect for cabling as it is for plain knitting.
