Schachenmayr Belisia

Belisia from Schachenmayr is a soft, fine-spun cotton tape yarn that knits up at a DK weight.

In a range of bright and neutral colors, Belisia is your go-to for warm weather projects. Made in Italy.

Note: the ball band on this yarn might say "SMC", but this is the same company as Schachenmayr.

    Comments about SMC Belisia:

    I've looked for years for a cotton yarn that wasn't heavy, wasn't so lightweight that it is see-through, is soft and comfortable to wear , is easy to knit with, no tangling or knotting up....and Belisia is all that and more. The colors (I bought 5 shades) are gorgeous, and even though it's constructed as a tape or ribbon...it knits without twisting, at least not much. I adore this yarn.

        Easy Adjustment to Tape-Yarn

        By EverKnitting

        from Ann Arbor, MI

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Great For Us5-9
        • No pilling
        • No splitting

        Cons

        • Adjusting To Feel
        • Need 2 Re-ballsnarls
        • Slips Off Needles First

        Best Uses

        • Summer Weight Projects

        Comments about SMC Belisia:

        Used to replace a LinenBlend for DROPS lace cardigan; great weight and look on range of needle sizes for this & other projects (gauges US 5 @ 7.5 st/in to US 9 @ 3.5 st/in) -- would STRONGLY recommend for it's lack of pilling and splitting, both common on 100% cotton yarns of DK & worsted weights. Balls give you more yardage than is common which I also like!

        Would love to get a color swatch -- used black (always reliable) but would order colors if I could count on what they "really" look like!

        nice light weight yarn

              This is a nice light weight ribbon yarn. Its about 2mm wide and looked very beauiful in a shell pattern. The aqua was a little lighter colored than I expected- just a very light blue.

                          Loved this yarn very much! I wish it will be not so expensive.
                          Easy to work with. From 2 skeins of Belisia I knitted a beautiful panties and a small crochet collar from left-overs.

                            Saw this knit on a sweater and ordered it immediately. Absolutely love knitting with it and love the weight. Most things I knit end up being heavy and I get hot, so this is perfect weight.
