    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk:

    This is the first time I have used Classic Silk and I am in love. It is not soft like alpaca or a fine merino but it drapes so beautifully I can forgive it. I also love the slight nubbiness of the yarn - the texture is very appealing. It does stretch a little and I am glad it did because I needed it to block out longer. I am very pleased with this product and will use it again.

      Used for baby booties, bootees. Purchased on sale. Found to be lack luster and coarse. Should have read the "raw silk and cotton" content more carefully, was like working with kitchen twine. Classic Elite name is deceiving, at least to me.

                Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk:

                I bought this yarn for a specific pattern since it was listed as a worsted weight yarn which it isn't. So I was unable to use it for the pattern I had chosen and had to search for a pattern compatible with the weight and amount of yarn I bought. I will not buy yarn from Webb again because of this.

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk:

                  I found this yarn very easy to knit. So soft. It was virtually "unsplittable" while knitting. It definitely has thin and thick texture, and the thinner areas can be broken with a good tug. So, not good for projects that get stressed because it will stretch and get weak. I used the cranberry color for a summer cardigan and the dye left color on my hands while I knitted, so I'd recommend you take possible color transfer into account when you choose a color. While it makes for a beautiful yarn, darker colors may be highly saturated. And, of course, with the silk, it sheds a little. Still, with those cautions, I loved using this yarn and would buy it again.
