      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco Discontinued Colors:

      I purchased the pink and when I received it I had to purchase another ball; the colour is absolutely perfect. It is not a shocking pink but a subdued rose pink. If your complexion is a "warm" then this is the colour that is most complimentary. The yarn is extremely soft due in part to the Angora and will be fantastic for the slouchy hat I'm knitting.

            This yarn is super soft. Knitting a lace cowl which is knitting up nicely. It is fuzzy but adds to the dimension of the cowl

                Purchased to knit a shawl for my Great Aunt Jeanne. Fresco is super soft and a pleasure to knit with. Did not find it fuzzy and it blocked beautifully. Will definitely purchase again.

                  Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco Discontinued Colors:

                  I'd always wanted to try this yarn and decided to buy it for a two-color stranded hat. First off, it is buttery soft and slides on and off the needles effortlessly. The color is beautiful and was amazingly close to what I expected. I will definitely buy this yarn again for future projects.

                    Very nice and easy to work with. I am making a baby sweater with it but I think it would work great for anything wearable because it feels so nice!

                          I have knit hats, scarves and shawls with Fresco. I love its softness yet the wool content holds shape very well. The angora produces a lovely halo but does not obscure colorwork. The color is very even and the yarn is well-spun.
