      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk:

      This is the first time I have used Classic Silk and I am in love. It is not soft like alpaca or a fine merino but it drapes so beautifully I can forgive it. I also love the slight nubbiness of the yarn - the texture is very appealing. It does stretch a little and I am glad it did because I needed it to block out longer. I am very pleased with this product and will use it again.

      Classic Silk isn't silky enough

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk:

        Used for baby booties, bootees. Purchased on sale. Found to be lack luster and coarse. Should have read the "raw silk and cotton" content more carefully, was like working with kitchen twine. Classic Elite name is deceiving, at least to me.

                  Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk:

                  I bought this yarn for a specific pattern since it was listed as a worsted weight yarn which it isn't. So I was unable to use it for the pattern I had chosen and had to search for a pattern compatible with the weight and amount of yarn I bought. I will not buy yarn from Webb again because of this.
