Great Yarn

I purchased this yarn to make a shawl since this is the yarn the designer used. It turned out beautifully. Nice stitch definition, great color selection.

I bought this yarn to knit a shawl. It has a light sheen due to the silk content, and suits 'next to skin' wear as it is very soft. I was disappointed with the intermittent lumps, (which may be loose splices?). The shawl I am knitting has a large stockinet section and the thicker spots of yarn caused by the splices are a little obvious. I would use this yarn again, but not in smooth garments.

Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Magnolia:

Nice soft yarn with a slight sheen due to the silk content. This is a single ply, fairly loosely spun yarn so this won't be a good choice for garments that need a more durable yarn such as gloves, socks or kids garments. But for a luxurious feeling scarf or sweater, this yarn would be great. It does have sections with uneven thickness which give it a home spun feel that some people may not like. But since it is a single ply yarn, in the thick areas some of the fiber can be removed to make a more even thickness. It is slightly slick due to the silk content so I would recommend bamboo needles, not metal for easier knitting.

    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Magnolia:

    Magnolia was THE first yarn I ever knit with when I started in 2011 and it has never failed me since. Soft enough to take the slightly itchy wool feeling away, but enough wool content to maintain stitch definition, true to weight for DK, love love love

    Service and delivery comments:

    LOVE Webs prices, they can sometimes take a couple days to get an online order turned and shipped around but excellent customer service, very responsive

                  Making a lace pattern shawl. Love the color and slight sheen. Yarn is impressively soft and has almost a haze effect. May disappear after blocking. This yarn is slightly slippery on Addi turbos, which is good for the experienced knitter. Novices may want to use wooden needles.
