                Beautiful but a little itch but not enough to really worry about.

                Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Color by Kristin:

                I bought this yarn primarily for color (French Roast)as I was looking for yarn to make a scarf at my daughter's request to go with a camel coat. I thought that the fiber combination would make it soft enough to wear close to the skin, but structured enough that it would stand up for the long haul. I haven't finished the scarf yet, but I have enjoyed knitting with it and it does appear to meet the parameters.

                      This is one of my favorite yarns. I first used it when it as a Nashua yarn, and was delighted to find that Classic Elite is now producing it. It is wonderful for colorwork and has a lovely hand.

                        This is my "go to" yarn. The colors are lovely and coordinate with one another so nicely. Since I mostly do stranded colorwork, this is a huge bonus! The yarn itself is a wonderful mixture of wool, alpaca and mohair. It knits up both beautifully and easily!

                        This is also a great yarn for felting.

                          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Color by Kristin:

                          I ordered the yarn so I could make the gloves "Sebastien" by Kristin Nicholas - the brightly colored ones on the front of the WEBS catalog. The colors of the yarn are gorgeous and evenly dyed. I've finished one of the mittens and am half way through the other - and I can tell that they will be wonderfully warm. The angora does give it a slight halo, which just adds to the softness of it.
