Schachenmayr Belisia

Belisia from Schachenmayr is a soft, fine-spun cotton tape yarn that knits up at a DK weight. Belisia is exceptionally light, so it's perfect for airy summer garments that'll keep you cool and looking sophisticated. In a range of bright and neutral colors, Belisia is your go-to for warm weather projects. Made in Italy.

Note: the ball band on this yarn might say "SMC", but this is the same company as Schachenmayr.

This yarn is available online only.

      Easy Adjustment to Tape-Yarn

      By EverKnitting

      from Ann Arbor, MI

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Great For Us5-9
      • No pilling
      • No splitting

      Cons

      • Adjusting To Feel
      • Need 2 Re-ballsnarls
      • Slips Off Needles First

      Best Uses

      • Summer Weight Projects

      Comments about SMC Belisia:

      Used to replace a LinenBlend for DROPS lace cardigan; great weight and look on range of needle sizes for this & other projects (gauges US 5 @ 7.5 st/in to US 9 @ 3.5 st/in) -- would STRONGLY recommend for it's lack of pilling and splitting, both common on 100% cotton yarns of DK & worsted weights. Balls give you more yardage than is common which I also like!

      Would love to get a color swatch -- used black (always reliable) but would order colors if I could count on what they "really" look like!

      nice light weight yarn

      Pros

        Cons

          Best Uses

            Comments about SMC Belisia:

            This is a nice light weight ribbon yarn. Its about 2mm wide and looked very beauiful in a shell pattern. The aqua was a little lighter colored than I expected- just a very light blue.

                        Loved this yarn very much! I wish it will be not so expensive.
                        Easy to work with. From 2 skeins of Belisia I knitted a beautiful panties and a small crochet collar from left-overs.

                          Saw this knit on a sweater and ordered it immediately. Absolutely love knitting with it and love the weight. Most things I knit end up being heavy and I get hot, so this is perfect weight.
