    I have made hats and a felted pincushion from this yarn and I am currently knitting a sweater from it. This is a soft and warm yarn. There is a little shedding during the knitting, but not much. It felts great. The hats are super warm. I knit this on a size 9 for the hats so it is an Aran weight. The colors are bright and have not faded even during the felting. I would like to get more of this yarn.Great yardage!

    This yarn goes quickly and I needed less than 8 skeins to make a cabled sweater.
    But it is not really to agreable to knit: not soft as merino & baby alpaca mixes. I should have read the previous reviews...
    The color also is a bit different from the one I expected: darker...Monitor problem I guess. But it gives a nice finished sweater.

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Montera Discontinued Colors:

            This is my favorite yarn. It sheds quite a bit and is not the softerst (although it is soft) but I just love it. The colors are lovely, I love the feel of this on my needles. I have knitted numerous sampler squares with this, as well as a felted bag and it does very well in these applications. I'm hoping to start a sweater soon.

            Service and delivery comments:

            I do wish that the time from order to ship was faster. It can be a bit trying on my patience and also, in the case of a yarn that has sold out, it is nerve wracking wondering whether I placed my order soon enough to be receiving it.

            Once it ships, it does so very quickly and seamlessly. It's just the waiting period between ordering and shipping.

              This yarn is wonderful for a heavy sweater. Not as coarse, stiff, or scratchy as some wools, but still very warm. Moderately soft. Colors work up gorgeously.

There is a little shedding during the knitting, but not much. It felts great. The hats are super warm. I knit this on a size 9 for the hats so it is an Aran weight. The colors are bright and have not faded even during the felting. I would like to get more of this yarn.Great yardage!
