      Comments about SMC Belisia:

      there was no check out boxes on this but I can tell you why I love it. It's a tape yarn. Wasn't sure about it until I got it. But oh boy it makes nice stitches and it's soft, the colors are awesome and it knits up quickly. Other cottons have been hard on my hands but not this. Can only hope they carry it all the time. price is wonderful as well.

          I made a beautiful crochet poncho cover-up in white. So lightweight. I liked that it wasn't stiff like some ribbon type yarns are.

          Comments about SMC Belisia:

          I used this cotton tape in the weft of hand towels.
          The tape width was ideal and it worked really well allowing me to produce hand towels that are absorbent and colourful.

            Comments about SMC Belisia:

            I've looked for years for a cotton yarn that wasn't heavy, wasn't so lightweight that it is see-through, is soft and comfortable to wear , is easy to knit with, no tangling or knotting up....and Belisia is all that and more. The colors (I bought 5 shades) are gorgeous, and even though it's constructed as a tape or ribbon...it knits without twisting, at least not much. I adore this yarn.

                Best Uses

                • Summer Weight Projects

                Comments about SMC Belisia:

                Used to replace a LinenBlend for DROPS lace cardigan; great weight and look on range of needle sizes for this & other projects (gauges US 5 @ 7.5 st/in to US 9 @ 3.5 st/in) -- would STRONGLY recommend for it's lack of pilling and splitting, both common on 100% cotton yarns of DK & worsted weights. Balls give you more yardage than is common which I also like!

                Would love to get a color swatch -- used black (always reliable) but would order colors if I could count on what they "really" look like!

                nice light weight yarn

                Comments about SMC Belisia:

                This is a nice light weight ribbon yarn. Its about 2mm wide and looked very beauiful in a shell pattern. The aqua was a little lighter colored than I expected- just a very light blue.
