        This yarn is super soft. Knitting a lace cowl which is knitting up nicely. It is fuzzy but adds to the dimension of the cowl

            Purchased to knit a shawl for my Great Aunt Jeanne. Fresco is super soft and a pleasure to knit with. Did not find it fuzzy and it blocked beautifully. Will definitely purchase again.

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco Discontinued Colors:

              I'd always wanted to try this yarn and decided to buy it for a two-color stranded hat. First off, it is buttery soft and slides on and off the needles effortlessly. The color is beautiful and was amazingly close to what I expected. I will definitely buy this yarn again for future projects.

                Very nice and easy to work with. I am making a baby sweater with it but I think it would work great for anything wearable because it feels so nice!

                      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco Discontinued Colors:

                      I have knit hats, scarves and shawls with Fresco. I love its softness yet the wool content holds shape very well. The angora produces a lovely halo but does not obscure colorwork. The color is very even and the yarn is well-spun.

                        It's perfect for the baby cardigan I am knitting. It's got a lovely subtle halo that I suspect will grow when blocked, but it's not too fuzzy. Does not appear to shed as much as I feared it might.
