      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Katydid:

      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.

                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.

                        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.
