          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Canyon:

          I don't know yet if it going to pill or fuzz up, but other than that I love this yarn. I would buy bags of it if I could, as it is perfect for light lacy warm-season accessories - little scarves and such which knit up fast and make good gifts. Nice to work with and nice against the skin. (Note - "Cerro" is the dyed version of this. The same but colours.)

                    Canyon is a joy to knit and wear, so soft and smooth.
                    Drapes beautifully when knitted.

                    Your Canyon is just right. I will make use of it another day. I loved making the shawl with two tones of it. It worked out just right.

                          Made an early fall 3/4 length sleeve sweater for my daughter. The yarn is easy to work with and knits up very nicely.

                              I adore this yarn!!! I've made three tops with it so far and plan to do more. It feels wonderful to knit and wear. I've washed my tops multiple times and they look and feel better each time. No shedding, stretching, or pilling.

                                I always love Classic Elite Yarns and I have been on a cotton kick for a while. Now it's the best of two worlds, cotton and alpaca (my other favorite)! The yarn tends to split easily but that is completely forgiven when you see and feel how beautifully it knits. I would love to make a bedspread in it just so I could wrap myself up in it!
