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 wanted to make a baby item; the pattern called for this and it's anything but soft, nor did it look good. It was thick and bulky . I wasn't please with the stitches and all in all was disappointed. The colors are fabulous and again i was making something that they shouldn't have suggested that yarn for

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk:

        I love the feel of this yarn! The luster of silk is lost when it is blended with cotton, but you gain a soft, cushy, springy yarn that is a joy to knit and wear.
