With alpaca & mohair in it, I expected it to be softer yarn.

Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Color by Kristin:

This time it was for Cathy Carron's "School Ties" pattern from her Cowlgirls book (which I also bought at WEBS). I already had a skein of the Sunflower and Deep Blue Sea from a previous purchase of Colors by Kristin. I decided it was about time to make my daughter that Ravenclaw scarf I promised her years ago. I worked in magic loop and this pattern was so much fun. This yarn was part of the fun as it slides nicely on the needles, is soft to the touch, doesn't split easily and has just the right amount of stretch. I have paid betwenn $4.79 and $5.49 a skein and for 95 yards it's a good price. This purchase was two more skeins of the blue to finish the project. I ended up with about 4 yards left when I was done.

      I used this for a sweater and love the lightness of the yarn and its warmth. I hope it does not pill, being a softer fiber.

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Color by Kristin:

      This yarn is really a great bargain (purchased it on a Steve's Deal of the Day). I do admit I did not read the yardage so was a little surprised by the small skeins but there was plenty of yarn to do two-color hats. I have been crocheting with it and it slides smoothly on the hook and doesn't split. The fiber combination is so soft. I will definitely buy this yarn again.

      Pros

      • Doesn't Split Or Untwist
      • Even Dye Great Colors
      • Soft

      Cons

      • Hand wash
      • Stitch Definition Poor

      Best Uses

      • Gloves
      • Hats
      • Mittens
      • Scarves
      • Sweaters

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Color by Kristin:

      This yarn is very forgiving when one must pull out and reknit rows/rounds. It is soft so it is good for wearing next to the skin. It is a really great all-purpose worsted weight yarn. The color choices are excellent, and it is beautifully and evenly dyed. Two draw backs are: 1) It is hand wash only and 2) Stitch definition is poor. I am currently making a poncho for my daughter, so it is still in progress. This yarn has become my go-to yarn for many, many things.
