Classic Elite Yarns Chalet

Classic Elite Chalet is a bulky weight yarn with the snuggly softness of alpaca paired with the smooth drape of bamboo viscose. This chainette constructed yarn is fantastically squishy and works up into incredibly warm, comfy garments and accessories. Chalet is undyed, in natural neutral tones with a bit of shine from the bamboo. Anything you make from Chalet is sure to be cuddle-worthy! Made in Peru.

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Chalet:

            Make sure you apply hand lotion before working with this yarn! It's incredibly soft & lovely, but if you have any rough skin you can be certain it will catch & pull out strands which I discovered after starting my afghan. And the chainette construction makes it tough to work a pull back into line.

                        Great for small lap robes or afghans. Not scratchy like wool. Very easy to knit with. Does snag a bit and minor shedding.

                              The yarn has both lovely drape and wonderful softness. I have made both the Classic Elite Diagonal Wrap project that was developed for the yarn, and a man's scarf that also turned out beautifully. The yarn drapes really well so a large wrap is the perfect project. This yarn also feels soft and non-itchy against the skin.

                                    The yarn is so scrumptious that I dropped my other projects to start a cowl right away. Delightful to knit with.

                                          This yarn is being used to make a bias knit wrap that was specifically designed for this yarn by Classic Elite. It is going through my knitting group like fire! Everyone is making it. It is gorgeous.
