S.Charles Collezione Ritratto

We think Ritratto is one of the prettiest yarns on the market. The mohair makes it slightly fuzzy, the metallic thread gives it a nice sparkle and layers of color make it a truly beautiful yarn. Ritratto is also a great addition to handwoven projects!  Made in Italy.

        Ritratto has such a wonderful shine and knits up so beautifully that anything you create with it is sure to impress and those that receive items made from Ritratto are delighted to have and to wear them. It's one of my first "go to" yarns when I need to make that special gift.

        Comments about S.Charles Collezione Ritratto:

        I chose the Dinah Shrug as I wanted something that had snap! (Tahki) It goes just as well with jeans and a skirt or on the town. It as a shiny thread which feels like a light-weight Poly thread that is metallic. I used charcoal, circus, and two shades of purple. I added an extra color and set of each segment of color with the charcoal

        Service and delivery comments:

        My delivery was very prompt and packaged well.

          Comments about S.Charles Collezione Ritratto:

          I have used this yarn in the Dinah Striped Circle Shrug. My husband couldn't stop remarking what a beautiful yarn it was. I made the Tyra top but don't like how it looks so plan on ripping it out and making the Faye two way vest. I also have used it in the Emma Entrelac Scarf in CRYSTAL, LUNA & RITRATTO. It's an expensive yarn, but Webs has it on sale occasionally.
