Stacy Charles Fine Yarns Ritratto

We think Ritratto is one of the prettiest yarns on the market. The mohair makes it slightly fuzzy, the metallic thread gives it a nice sparkle and layers of color make it a truly beautiful yarn. Ritratto is also a great addition to handwoven projects!  Made in Italy

    Comments about S.Charles Collezione Ritratto:

    I used it for the upper part of a dress. It knits up beautifully with a lace and cable pattern. So tasteful: it catches attention but not tacky at the same time. I combined it with a soft cotton yarn as lining. It gives a nice contrast as a background and the thickness I needed. I loved working with it!!!

      this yarn knits up beautifully in lace pattern and cables. (try the baby cables it is just perfect!)however I found it itchy wearing it directly to the skin.

        Comments about S.Charles Collezione Ritratto:

        This yarn works well for me because I almost always rely on interesting color. I work primarily on a cricket loom so the color and texture of the yarn is important to keep my interst and create interesting scarves. I am not afraid of color and my scarves seem tgo be well received.

          Comments about S.Charles Collezione Ritratto:

          I made a shrug out of this which worked up beautifully and the variation in color highlighted the variation in pattern without looking "patchy". The only down side is that there is a metallic thread that is part of the yarn and gives it it's distinctive look which can be itchy to the skin due to variation in the warp of the yarn....overall I liked it.

                Ritratto has such a wonderful shine and knits up so beautifully that anything you create with it is sure to impress and those that receive items made from Ritratto are delighted to have and to wear them. It's one of my first "go to" yarns when I need to make that special gift.
