      It is great for lace patterns with medium needles as it knits up fast and you get a lot of mileage from the yarn

      • I Made A Couch Throw

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Pirouette Discontinued Colors:

      This yarn is easy to work with...has a soft and beautiful drape to it. The addition of bamboo to the mohair makes this yarn wonderful...can't say enough about it. The color was exactly right on. I'm making a large couch throw....looks elegant...not your run of the mill knitted afghan! Using #9 needles....perfect. The yarn was on sale....made it affordable to make a large item. No downside to this yarn!

      Pros

      • Blocks Beautifully
      • great coors
      • Knits Like Kidsilk
      • Softens With Wet Block

      Cons

      • Not As Soft As Kidsilk

      Best Uses

      • Scarves Shawls

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Pirouette Discontinued Colors:

      I have used Pirouette for scarf and shawl projects. They turn out beautifully just like kidsilk (75% mohair 25% silk blends)is not quite as soft as the more expensive kidsilk. It works up great in lace patterns, and it would take a very discerning wearer to tell the difference. With the cost of hand knitting ever escalating this is a good substitute by a trusted yarn company.
