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.

        Beautiful yarn. Using it to make a sweater for my daughter.

        Service and delivery comments:

        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.

                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.

                I am trying to make a short sleeved sweater. This yarn is scratchy with some kind of fibers in it. I know it's linen. I just didn't know it would be so scratchy. Maybe when it's washed it will be ok.

                    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Soft Linen:

                    This is a pretty descent wool and linen blend. It stretches just a bit to much for my taste. I have basically given up on linen and any blends of linen because of the stretch. This particular yarn was also a bit difficult to fix when you have to frog.its plus side is it is surprisingly soft having some linen in it.
