        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Waterlily:

        I am using some of the yarn I bought for scarves and it does the job very well. The other yarn I'm going to use for felted slippers, but haven't done it yet.
        The yarn is excellent quality, as advertized in color and weight, and easy to use. I live on the other side of the world (New Zealand) yet this order reached me in a week--excellent service!
        Thank you.

          This yarn knits up evenly, soft and warm with lovely colors. I would buy more of it.

          I have used this for a few years for baby sweaters. It used to be rich, squishy and soft. The last shipment was scratchier for some reason. Cables still show up well and the colors are beautiful. The texture became softer after wet blocking, though the piece became a bit too limp. This might no longer be the best worsted merino out there.

                  This is the best yarn for sweaters that I have ever worked with in 12 years. Great stitch definition, soft, easy to work with, beautiful product!. Hope they expand the color choices.
