        This is a wonderful ribbon yarn, one that I have used before in a different color way. I tried to buy more at my local yarn shop but the owner no longer carries it. In searching the Internet, it appears that the company is out of business. However, I was sooooooooo thrilled to find it on your site, and in the color I was hoping to buy. Delivery was timely. Many thanks for everything.

          I am making my second openwork sweater with Katydid and they work up quickly and look terrific with a tank or cami under.

                  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!

                        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.
