    Cons

    • 30 Acrylic Too Much

    Best Uses

    • I Made A Bulky Sweater
    • Sweaters

    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Horizon:

    I made an oversized sweater to wear casually. Very warm. I used a seed (moss) stitch which worked great with the variegated yarn. Made each stitch really pop.
    For me, the 30% acrylic content was too much. I could feel it on my fingers as I worked. May not bother others. I felt that if the acrylic and alpaca content were reversed the product would be perfect.
    The composition, as it was, worked up beautifully and I would purchase Horizon again for another project.

                  I made my daughter an infinity scarf with this and plan on making another in a different color and pattern. Wearing the scarf with solid colors brings out different tones in the yarn. I love it! Can't wait to make the next one.

                    Made an infinity scarf, love it because it will be warm but lightweight. There was nothing about this yarn that I didn't like accept that it has a bit of acrylic in it so I'm hoping it won't begin to clump with age. Plan on making a winter headband as well.
