knitted a lace pattern shawl with this yarn - it blocked out wonderfully and the drape is great. The different textures add interest, but they don't influence the gauge. The shiny sections in this yarn are a great contrast to the matte sections and the different colors coming with the three different textures are very subtle and tone in tone.

I used this product for a specific Classic Elite pattern. It has a nice feel, weight, and drape, but the "shiny" spots (where it changes from cotton to all viscose) seem strange to me, especially accompanied by change in thickness and elasticity. Still, this is what the pattern called for. I think the finished product will be very nice.

Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Sanibel:

While I love the ribbed t I made I had to reinforce the neck line and underarms because the weight of the garment pulled it off my shoulders

    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Sanibel:

    This is a luscious yarn, with much interest because of the contrast between the matte finish cotton, and the shiny rayon (viscose). I have made 6 of the Sanibel Cowl (free pattern) in all different colors for gifts, and everyone loves them! I have recommended this to several friends.

    I am using this yarn to make a cowl. The colors are beautiful and perfect for a lightweight spring cowl. I ordered another color because of the great results.

            I have made 3 cowls with this yarn and each is beautiful! The finished cowl drapes so well and the little bits of "bling" add so much.
