Been looking for a yarn to replace the Vittadini Daniella yarn from a very old book, tried several others, but this works up beautifully. The Amherst from Valley yarns also available at Webs,works well too.

    I did not purchase enough in the natural color and had to buy more in a different dye lot....It didn't matter with this color. They matched perfectly.

        I used this yarn to knit a pair of knee-socks. They are nice and warm and the yarn feels so nice on my feet and legs.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Vista:

        Made a man's pair of gloves at 6 sts/inch and they are warm. The yarn looks rustic and masculine. While it is not especially soft, it's not unpleasant to touch, either. It is not machine washable and that's always a drawback. I am looking at using this yarn again to make another male a pair of texting mittens. I was very happy with the color/look of the other gloves I made, and the yarn is easy to work with.

          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Vista:

          Have already knit a fair isle hat and a pair of socks from this yarn. I LOVE the feel of the fabric when it is knit up. Vista is a great yarn for a travel project in the summer, because it isn't too hot to work with.

              Unusual yarn

              By Regen

              from Cali

              Pros

              • Holds form
              • Not splitty

              Cons

              • Perhaps may stretch a bit

              Best Uses

              • Structured pieces

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Vista:

              I'm testing yarn to see if I should get more for the skirt. Didn't think the yarn could hold the weight, but it's actually quite resilient and bounces back. (Doing a lace cap). It isn't scratchy per se, not particularly difficult to work - I just feel like I'm knitting with barley soup! I have the beaver grey - nice color, very slight variation.
