        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Blackthorn:

        My husband and I are both fiber artists. We LOVE this yarn for weaving on a triangle loom. It is sturdy, doesn't break and it "fulls" very nicely. I will be purchasing more of this product to make some crocheted items, as well. The natural colors are beautiful!

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Blackthorn:

        I really like this yarn. It has very good stitch definition, the color is wonderful and as shown on-line. It wasn't as soft as I had imagined but was soft for me to use as a shawl neck-warmer. I would buy this again.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Blackthorn:

        Used this for a color-block pullover (peat & ash). So easy to knit with and beautiful natural colors. Blocked before assembly simply by pinning to blocking board and misting heavily with water. After drying it was a beautiful fabric and after assembly hardly needed to be reblocked. I did wash in Eucalan and reblocked. It grew a little when very wet but as it dried a little the natural memory of the wool took over and went back to shape beautifully with just a few pins in strategic places. Makes a very warm sweater. I will definitely use this again.
