I knit a sweater and hat set. This is a terrific yarn for LOTS OF CABLES, which is what I used it for, it is light and soft so if you want heavy weight not the yarn for the project, but it is beautiful, the sweater is lovely, tons of cables with a rolled neck. I think the gauge is a little generous and actually more a DK/sport weight a few flubs in the yarn but give it more interest. This yarn is a great deal and at this price a definite add to the stash. I ordered 2 bags in the lichen, which is a beautiful color, very soft green.

    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Kumara Discontinued Colors:

    This is a nice and soft yarn that knits evenly and has great stitch definition. It is a worsted/aran weight that can be knit at a tighter gauge without losing the drape and soft hand. It is elastic, soft, and spongy. The colors are beautiful.
    Sad to see this yarn being discountinued.

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Kumara Discontinued Colors:

      It just so happened that I ordered according to weight which was supposed to be worsted. It is really a DK weight - AND, I've been looking for the perfect DK yarn. So when this arrived, I knew I found the perfect yarn for my ideal sweater.

          This beautiful yarn in soft silver color was perfect for a knit wrap that I made as a Christmas gift. It is soft and luxurious when knit on size 10 or 11 needles. Knits up quickly and perfectly!

              Lovely soft yarn in variety of great colours. Knits up evenly and has good stitch definition. It does stretch after washing so making a gauge swatch is necessary!!
              I have made hat and a scarf out of it and it came out really beautiful. Planning to knit sweaters out of it as well.
              Definitely would recommend it.

                I am a beginner and I saw this pattern for a scarf for a man. It called for Kumara Classic Elite Yarn.
                I ordered the yarn and it is "manly" yet soft.

                Service and delivery comments:

                I like ordering from Web. Their delivery is prompt, I usually receive my order within a week. The customer service is helpful and available.
