    I love the feel of this yarn! The luster of silk is lost when it is blended with cotton, but you gain a soft, cushy, springy yarn that is a joy to knit and wear.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk:

        This is the first time I have used Classic Silk and I am in love. It is not soft like alpaca or a fine merino but it drapes so beautifully I can forgive it. I also love the slight nubbiness of the yarn - the texture is very appealing. It does stretch a little and I am glad it did because I needed it to block out longer. I am very pleased with this product and will use it again.

          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk:

          Used for baby booties, bootees. Purchased on sale. Found to be lack luster and coarse. Should have read the "raw silk and cotton" content more carefully, was like working with kitchen twine. Classic Elite name is deceiving, at least to me.
