      Lovely yarn for warm weather

      By Janalex

      from Brisbane, Australia

      Pros

      • Beautiful Drape For Lace
      • Feels soft
      • Handles Well On Needles
      • Obvious quality
      • Soft Color Variations

      Cons

        Best Uses

        • Lace Sweaters

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Mesa:

        Balls are small so lots of ends to weave in, but the yarn isn't slippery so it weaves in well. Quite a thick yarn for a cotton, but it's so soft and is dyed beautifully so makes a lovely lace pattern and is soft and pretty in stocking stitch. It would be good for a non wool sweater - I'm making the Hooded Eyelet Vest by Fiona Ellis and it's just perfect so far. I'm thinking of buying more, to make a lace skirt as it seems to be a substantial yarn.

          a little too rigid

          By Gav's Mum

          from Washington, DC

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Not itchy
          • Soft

          Cons

          • Feels Rigid

          Best Uses

          • Scarf
          • Wash cloth

          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Mesa:

          I bought this online in hopes that it would show off the stitch work in a scarf pattern. I used the gauge guide and the finished result didn't live up to the promise. Also, the yarn was more rigid than it looked.

                Cons

                  Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Mesa:

                  I really enjoyed working with the yarn. Very soft so Mesa works up nicely. Also I used color 4278 (brown) for my new grandsons baby blanket, the color shading looks great.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  The yarn packaged nicely and arrived in a timely manner.

                  Good Summerweight Cotton

                  By 50-Year Knitter

                  from San Antonio, TX

                  Pros

                  • Good stitch definition
                  • No knots
                  • Soft
                  • Subtle Shading

                  Cons

                    Best Uses

                    • Vest

                    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Mesa:

                    Purchased this from my LYS, not WEBS. It knits in a gauge similar to worsted wool. It is difficult to find an "interesting" cotton, but the tone-on-tone subtle shading provides a winning combination.
