          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!

                    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco Discontinued Colors:

                    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.

                      It's perfect for the baby cardigan I am knitting. It's got a lovely subtle halo that I suspect will grow when blocked, but it's not too fuzzy. Does not appear to shed as much as I feared it might.
