      I made a beautiful crochet poncho cover-up in white. So lightweight. I liked that it wasn't stiff like some ribbon type yarns are.

      Comments about SMC Belisia:

      I used this cotton tape in the weft of hand towels.
      The tape width was ideal and it worked really well allowing me to produce hand towels that are absorbent and colourful.

      By KnitCrazy

      from Parker, CO

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Good Pattern Support
      • Great Colors
      • Soft
      • Washes well

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • baby
        • Scarves
        • Sweaters

        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

            Verified Buyer

            Comments about SMC Belisia:

            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.
