Aran weight heaven. Rico Essentials Soft Merino Aran is 100% superwash wool, and brilliant for your aran weight patterns for jumpers, cardigans, homeware (think of the blankets!) and perfect for knitting childrenswear. The colour palette is cleverly chosen - modern neutrals and greys with brights and pastels - and the stitch definition is good. Warm, washable, and great value!
