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:

    Made a child's cardigan using this yarn. It's incredibly soft and lovely to knit with. It was thinner than expected, but I was still able to use it. I think this yarn would be great for shawls and delicate lace designs. I'm thinking of buying more colors. Highly recommend!

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco:

      I love this yarn. It's soft but has enough body to hold a textured pattern/cable. It's fine for wearing next to skin even for picky people : ) My only negative is all 3 colors I've ordered are quite a bit darker than the website pics. (I haven't found that to be a problem with other yarns on webs.) I just received 4 skeins of Cinder and it is much darker.

      I used it doubled with Noro Silk Garden for a scarf/wrap and it works well with funkier/variegated/thick and thin yarns.

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco:

              I love the softness of this yarn and the beautiful blush pink color, but it is very thin and I think it was mislabelled - this looks more like a sock or lace yarn to me rather than what description suggests. I had to double the strands to get the gauge I needed. I haven't finished sweater yet, so can't comment on how well it wears and washes.

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco:

              This is a beautiful and very soft yarn. I am using it to make ballet wrap sweaters for my girls. I bought the color light pink and its perfect for ballet uniform requirements. However, I believe that this yarn is mislabeled as "sport" weight, and its more of a "lace" or "fingering" weight. It is VERY THIN. I had to double the yarn to make the gauge that I needed. I love the softness and the slight fuzzy halo that the angora adds to the yarn. I haven't finished my project yet, so can not comment on durability, but will update as soon as I have more information.

                This yarn is very rewarding. I didn't realize how wonderful it knit up until my whole cowl was finished. It is soft and yet maintains good body in a finished product. I enjoy wearing my cowl!

                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.

                  I am using this yarn for baby clothing and it is soft enough to put next to a baby's skin. This is very nice yarn.
