Classic Elite Yarns Soft Linen

Classic Elite Soft Linen is a touchable wonder in a surprisingly soft blend. Linen adds durability and cooling properties, wool adds elasticity, and baby alpaca softens this squishy, multi-ply yarn. Soft Linen is great for spring and summer garments you can wear into the cool evening. Made in Peru.

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Soft Linen:

      I used this product for the CEY Geneva Shawlette.

      The color pallette is rich and the yarn is very soft.
      The best quality about this yarn is that after blocking the stitch definition and the drape of the garment is excellent.

              Prompt delivery, arrived as promised and with no hassle at all. It helped that I knew exactly what yarn I needed; and I was grateful that WEBS had that exact product in stock!

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Soft Linen:

              I was very pleasantly surprised with the quality of this yarn. It knitted up beautifully with good stitch definition and good drape. It became even softer after hand washing and tossing the knitted garment into the dryer with a large beach towel until just barely damp and then blocked beautifully. this softened the yarn and brought out the alpaca halo, resulting in a beautiful finished garment.

                    Used smaller than recommended needles to achieve greater density.

                    Triangular shawl to be a gift

                    Will design and knit other shawls/scarves using Soft Linen in various colors

                      I am using this yarn for a vest with a variety of stitches in the pattern. The yarn gives good stitch definition to the solid parts of the pattern, and is lovely in the lacey parts.
