    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Provence Discontinued Colors:

    I bought this yarn for my first top-down sweater attempt. It has been a very good choice. The sweater itself is lovely. I can see, hence correct, my mistakes, and it doesn't snag, shed, or unravel. The price was right and it has a beautiful sheen and hand. I've also used this yarn for washcloths which I enjoy using, and they still look great.

      Knits quickly, has great stitch definition,
      needs to be knitted loosely or will produce a stiff fabric.

            I used this yarn to make a beautiful lace corset type shirt. It worked up amazingly fast and had a luxurious sheen and weight to it in addition to being every bit as soft as my egyptian cotton towels.

                      I had bought some of this yarn from a yarn shop, but I needed more and they were out of the color. I took a chance by ordering; the color was exactly like the yarn I already had. I'm extremely pleased with my purchase and will be buying from you in the future.

                        I got this yarn to make market bags, and although it is a little heavier than I like for a string bag, the intense colors are so beautiful I've bought more for my stash.

                          The yarn is a beautiful color with a nice sheen. Easy to work with, lightweight but knits up quickly. Used it or a cable knit sweater.

                              I used this yarn for a beach bag (Medano Beach by Heidi Kirrmaier.) It was a shinier yarn than it looked from the photos online, but that's to be expected with mercerized cotton. It was very smooth and soft and pleasant to knit with. It does show increases and decreases pretty plainly in the finished product, which I might not like in some projects, but apart from that i enjoyed it. The colors are great for cheerful, summery knits.
