Classic Elite Yarns Soft Linen

Classic Elite Soft Linen is a touchable wonder in a surprisingly soft blend. Linen adds durability and cooling properties, wool adds elasticity, and baby alpaca softens this squishy, multi-ply yarn. Soft Linen is great for spring and summer garments you can wear into the cool evening. Made in Peru.

Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Soft Linen:

I have wanted to try Soft Linen for awhile and when it was offered by Webs on sale, I decided to give it a go. It has good stitch definition and softens as I work with it. It has a nice drape. I am mid-project - a sweater - so I can say what happens when it gets a good soak and blocking, but I suspect it will improve even more. The only think I don't like is the long linen fibers protruding from the plied yarn. I have been nipping them off with a scissors. Not a big problem. I just like things tidy.

    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Soft Linen:

    I have always loved the look of linen yarn but have found it unpleasant to work with. 100% linen either slips off the needle, makes it hard to attach skeins, or is squeaky when I am knitting.

    Soft Linen is a game-changer! I just knitted and blocked a swatch. The stitch definition is so crisp and the swatch held its shape well due to the wool and alpaca. I love the outcome and look forward to just the right project. The project selected must not need a lot of stretch to it.

    Glad I picked this up during the Anniversary Sale. Thanks, Webs, for offering a product that will make me reconsider using Linen yarn!

      I really an enjoying working with this yarn. It has a lovely softness with just enough of the linen texture. The cardi I'm making has lace panels and they are working up beautifully in Soft Linen.

          I used this product for the CEY Geneva Shawlette.

          The color pallette is rich and the yarn is very soft.
          The best quality about this yarn is that after blocking the stitch definition and the drape of the garment is excellent.

                  Prompt delivery, arrived as promised and with no hassle at all. It helped that I knew exactly what yarn I needed; and I was grateful that WEBS had that exact product in stock!

                  Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Soft Linen:

                  I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of this yarn. It knitted up beautifully with good stitch definition and good drape. It became even softer after hand washing and tossing the knitted garment into the dryer with a large beach towel until just barely damp and then blocked beautifully. this softened the yarn and brought out the alpaca halo, resulting in a beautiful finished garment.
