          I bought this yarn on sale when I found the scarf pattern that you knit in a tube. It is quite soft for a linen blend yarn. It seems to get softer, and softer the more you handle it. I think it will wear nicely next to the skin.

              I have never used American yarn before but the pattern called specifically for #2 which falls just between our English 4 ply and Double Knit, hence ordering from your company. I was very pleased with the yarn and your excellent and prompt service. Thank you.

                Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Verde Collection Allegoro:

                I didn't fully appreciate this yarn until after I finished my project - a sweater. I tried it because I liked the organic materials and wanted a linen blend. It can split while knitting but I adapted quickly. The finished sweater washes beautifully in a front-loading washer, enhancing the stitch definition. Very soft and breathable next to the skin. A very lightweight hat would be nice in this yarn, as long as the pattern provided stretch.

                  I bought this yarn to use in a sweater with a lace pattern and the lace is showing so well with it. My only complaint would be that it has little pieces of linen that stick out once in awhile. Otherwise an awesome yarn.

                  Nice Yarn

                  This is a nice part linen yarn. It shows great stitch detail and is softer than some other linen yarns making it more pleasant to your hands. The only downside is that it can split when you are knitting.
