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.

            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.

                              This yarn is among the softest I've ever touched -- and I ordered it alongside cashmere! The drape is fabulous, it's incredibly warm, and it has is a great loft/halo after blocking. Really, the only issue is that (like all alpaca)it sheds like crazy.

                              I'd recommend it for stuff that doesn't need to stretch back into shape (so, no fitted sweaters). I made a huge circular shawl with it, and the thing is like a giant blanket -- warm, snuggly, and the perfect thing for a cold day.

                                I absolutely love this yarn. So soft and luxurious feeling. I am using this to knit a sweater as a gift and I know the recipient will appreciate the quality of this yarn. It has a great bulk without the weight of a heavy wool. The only slight problem is that it does split a bit if you aren't paying attention!

                                      The yarn is exactly how I imagined it would be. Glides smoothly across my needles. I bought five and will buy four or five more of the same to complete my shawl.
