            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.

            All my deliveries from yarn.com have been arrived in a timely fashion and in excellent condition.

              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.

                  Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Katydid:

                  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.

                        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Katydid:

                        I used this to make the Spumoni top from the Classic Elite "Double Scoop" leaflet for Spring 2012. I found it quick to use and pretty easy other than being obsessive about keeping it flat on my needles since it resembles a ribbon more than a round yarn. Whether I needed to do so I couldn't say because I couldn't stand to have some stitches flat and others not..
