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:

    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.

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco:

      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.

        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.
