    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.

      I love this yarn for it's sheen, softness and handspun look. It did have a few areas that were too loosely spun and the warp threads tended to fuzz. However, the end product, scarves, were marvelous and I would purchase again. It's probably not really meant to be a warp yarn, but it can work as such with a little patience and care.

      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.

            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.

                Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Magnolia:

                I have knitted a shawl out of it recently and it looks and feels wonderful. The yarn is very soft with lovely delicate sheen. It doesn't agree with much frogging, though.
                The colours, I have bought a few, are gorgeous, bit different from the pictures. It has good yardage and I really like it.

                Service and delivery comments:

                Customer services are fantastic! I love the live chat feature, very helpful especially if you live far away like I do. I have been buying from WEBS for a few years now and I have never been disappointed! Great shop!

                  This is a great yarn for detail work. Beautiful sheen and dye. There are a few spots in the strand that will randomly be thicker but when knitted it still looks great.

                    I obtained this yarn to create a cowl, and to have something that I could work on while waiting for appointments.

                    This yarn is so soft, smooth and supple that I cannot recommend it too highly.
