        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Katydid:

        Very well made yarn: not a single flaw in the 7 balls I ordered. I used this yarn to crochet a hairpin lace tunic with a 4.0 mm hook. The simple beauty of this tape yarn was the perfect match for the open stitches, producing a very soft,comfortable garment with good drape and just enough stretch. I had to unravel several yards to fix a skipped stitch and this was easy to do and the yarn performed without a hitch. Laundered well. The color I chose was a calm, muted shade of pink - love it and recommend it. I'm going to order more!

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Katydid:

              I originally bought this yarn because it was on sale and I am trying to start a new business since I am a stay at home mom. I worked up a few washcloths and fell in love with the texture the ribbon provided. I'm really disappointed this has been discontinued.

                Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Katydid:

                I purchased this yarn to make a spring cardigan, and I am very pleased with it. The cotton is soft and easy on my hands, and it has beautiful drape when knitted up. The yarn construction reminds me of fettuccine and is not at all splitty. I would use this versatile yarn again.

                    This is the beat yarn for reusable market produce bags. Colorful, fun, looks small but stretches to hold a lot. This fiber leaves no lint on you produce and returns to it's small size when empty. Great for trips to the farmers market!

                          Saw a model of sweater I knit in a shop and had to have it! Yarn is great and I did not try to keep it flat since it is a bit like a thick cotton ribbon. Cannot tell at all. It is a bit denser than I thought but I am trilled with the look. Soft, drapes well and hope to use it again.
