Dream in Color Classy

Dream in Color Classy is an incredibly soft worsted weight yarn. It is hand dyed by the great folks at Dream in Color in such a way that you will not get the usual "pooling" associated with hand dyed yarns. Dream in Color Classy is perfect for garments for babies to adults and great for accessories and blankets too!  A new version of Classy was introduced in 2014 that is significantly softer and more vibrant than the original. Yardage, washing instructions, etc. remain the same. New Classy skeins have a new label that has “New Now Softer” marked on it. Spun & hand-dyed in the USA.

Please note: Each skein of Dream in Color Classy is unique. There are no dye lots and skeins may vary.

    I loved this yarn, I made a great Ipad cover for it and lined it with cotton fabric and made gross grain ribbon ties for it. It is a great weight but feels light in the hands and has stitch definition galore and is soft to the touch.

    I bought 6 skeins of Blue Lagoon to make a Mondo Cable Cardi by Chic Knits. As with many super-wash yarns, the washed swatch did grow some so be sure to complete a full-sized swatch to obtain proper gauge. I alternated two skeins every other row, but the intensity of the dyes was so different between skeins that the sleeves are noticeably lighter. Knots were in three skeins, one of which had three knots. This is a particularly bad problem in a super-wash wool with a sweater knitted in one piece because it is difficult to splice the yarn and difficult to invisibly weave in the ends.

    Any one of these issues alone might have been acceptable, but in a premium yarn, it is really unsatisfactory. I emailed the manufacturer, but never received a response. The sweater is soft and comfortable, and I hope I forget the process of knitting the yarn soon. The problems would be less noticeable in small projects or multi-colored projects. Lighter colors may bleed less.

        I'm making a vest for my husband for Christmas and the 1947 pattern calls for #s 1 and 3 knitting needles so it's slow going but I love the color (Atomic Blue), even if it does come off onto my hands as I'm knitting.

            This yarn used to be wonderful to work with but since they changed it is not nearly as nice. It is thinner and just doesn't fall the same. The quality is not the same and the new version is inferior to the old version. They should go back to the old version.

              Nice worsted weight; great for winter wear; color shading does not "pool", creating a lovely effect.
              Makes an interesting effect when used in Entrelac stitching.

                I used this fibre to make a hat and it knit up beautifully. The young man loved the hat. After blocking, it fit perfectly and looked wonderful on him.

                I love Classy and will most definitely use it again.

                  Comments about Dream in Color Classy:

                  This yarn was so disappointing! The dye job was spectacular - better than Tosh because it went all the way through (no white core). The yarn was springy and the stitch definition was great but I could not get past the artificial feel. I have knit with much softer superwash merino yarn and for the price I think it should have felt better. Some may not mind the feel but I could not get past it - this is not a yarn you love to pet. I should have listened to some of the other reviewers who had similar complaints but I was hoping they were wrong. I plan on returning the remaining skiens.

                    Comments about Dream in Color Classy:

                    Product was good, however the color representation online specifically for Peacock Shadow was not what was received. Other colors seem to have a more accurate picture. Peacock Shadow was pictured as a medium periwinkle sort of blue, and what came (and is pictured on several other sites) is mostly black with some navy.

                    I exchanged the Peacock Shadow for Happy Forest and was very satisfied with the color representation.

                    I would recommend checking a few other online retailers for their color representations before buying Peacock Shadow specifically. I think I will do this for every yarn purchase I make at any online retailer.
