Classic Elite Yarns Fresco

You will not believe how soft Classic Elite Fresco is! The 6 ½ stitch to the inch gauge makes this yarn perfect for colorwork and delicate projects. Fresco's three plies are soft and squishy, in deep colors with a little shine that gives great stitch detail. Made in Peru.

Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco:

It was thinner than I expected so I couldn't use it with other "sport weight" yarns to complete my project. I had to get all the yarn to match. It is a really nice yarn though. It feels really nice and knits up quickly and evenly.

    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco:

    Bought because I had a sock pattern that called for a mohair wool blend no longer produced. This product provided sufficient halo to mimic the original yarn while containing enough wool that, I hope at least, it will be durable enough to wear occasionally.

      Quick, easy service. I got what I needed to finish a project where I inadvertantly ran short on yarn. A lifesaver.

        I love this yarn it is so so wonderful except it has these huge ugly joins. The kind where you think ok its looks like a spit splice then you knit a few rows and it is a huge bulky mess and you have to go back and take it out. ya love that

          Just wonderful yarn. Knits up to a very nice gauge and has a slightly angora-like affect.

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco:

            I knit a newborn slouchy hat photography prop with this yarn, in the cinder color. It has been very popular! The cinder color is so soft and neutral, an almost white-grey. The texture and softness of the yarn is to die for. I don't mind that I end up knitting at least one of these hats a week, it feels that good on my fingers. The weight is perfect for a slouchy hat.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Great customer services, as always. Shipping can be a little slow on average, but during the April and May sales, shipping times were fantastic!
