Classic Elite Yarns Magnolia

A beautiful blend of merino and silk, Classic Elite Magnolia has a slightly heathered appearance because the two fibers take the dye differently. The gentle sheen really makes your stitch patterns pop.  Made in Italy.

Great Yarn

I purchased this yarn to make a shawl since this is the yarn the designer used. It turned out beautifully. Nice stitch definition, great color selection.

I bought this yarn to knit a shawl. It has a light sheen due to the silk content, and suits 'next to skin' wear as it is very soft. I was disappointed with the intermittent lumps, (which may be loose splices?). The shawl I am knitting has a large stockinet section and the thicker spots of yarn caused by the splices are a little obvious. I would use this yarn again, but not in smooth garments.

          Making a lace pattern shawl. Love the color and slight sheen. Yarn is impressively soft and has almost a haze effect. May disappear after blocking. This yarn is slightly slippery on Addi turbos, which is good for the experienced knitter. Novices may want to use wooden needles.

            I'm knitting a sweater out of this, and am thrilled with the discrete sheen and lovely drape of it.

            The delivery was very rapid in spite of the sale period during which I ordered. The yarn was well packaged, and customer service very very helpful. I'm very satisfied with my purchase!

                The yarn had a good discountable price. But, the yarn lacked tight twists in some spots or had knots. If I wasn't so lazy, I should have cut out these imperfections.

                      The yarn is soft, lustrous and warm. It has the right balance of wool and silk. It is very easy to work with . I made a large shawl and plan to make another. It does not snag or split.
