    S.Charles Collezione 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 chose the Dinah Shrug as I wanted something that had snap! (Tahki) It goes just as well with jeans and a skirt or on the town. It as a shiny thread which feels like a light-weight Poly thread that is metallic. I used charcoal, circus, and two shades of purple. I added an extra color and set of each segment of color with the charcoal

    Service and delivery comments:

    My delivery was very prompt and packaged well.

      Comments about S.Charles Collezione Ritratto:

      I have used this yarn in the Dinah Striped Circle Shrug. My husband couldn't stop remarking what a beautiful yarn it was. I made the Tyra top but don't like how it looks so plan on ripping it out and making the Faye two way vest. I also have used it in the Emma Entrelac Scarf in CRYSTAL, LUNA & RITRATTO. It's an expensive yarn, but Webs has it on sale occasionally.

            Besides using this yarn for a knitted shawl, it was used in the design of a one-of-a-kind crocheted fiber art scarf in combination with several other yarns of similar weight, including one with a metallic thread.

                  I have looked at this yarn since I found it on the Web and drooled. I thought I would never be able to save enough money for three skeins for the Thaki Shrug. Lo and behold, after several exchanges I am now in posession. Knits beautifully and the three colors blend so well as they progress.
