I use this yarn for lace scarves. I like that it knits up quickly and it is easy to knit with. I use it with size 10 needles. With its long fibers it does not unknit well, so make sure you know your pattern before you start with this yarn. The colors are nice and are consistant from skein to skein and within the skein. The only problem I have with the yarn is that the finished product felts quickly with wear.

    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Giselle:

    Have knitted a lacy tunic for my teenage daughter, several lace shawls for friends, and crocheted scarves with this yarn. Beautiful drape. Knitted shawls open up exquisitely when blocked. Easier to undo mistakes when knitted, very tedious when crocheted. Love the feel of this fiber when working with it.

    Service and delivery comments:

    As always, delivery is prompt and arrived in good condition. Thank you!

        I used #13 needles and knit a basic scarf. I used two strands together to give it body. It is nice and soft against the skin.

          I use one thread of Lopi with the Giselle yarn for children and two threads for adults along with the mohair. It makes a tremendous difference in warmth and softness.

            This mohair makes a soft, light sweater. The color is a white, rather than a natural, or beige color as it appears online. Mohair is for the advanced knitter; you can't rip out your mistakes easily. I made the sweater as a gift and it was well appreciated.

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Giselle:

              The Giselle wool is very soft, and looks like a cloud when knitted up. As with all mohair yarn, this is difficult to rip out, so you need to know what you're doing.

                The finished products are beautiful. They are appealing to the eye, warm, yet delicate looking.
                It is not easy to knit because of the wight of the yarn.

                  I used Gizelle to make a scarf. I was amazed at how well it worked up. It is extremely light and airy. It is not very forgivable if you make a mistake and have to frog but otherwise I was very pleased with its performance. It would make a beautiful sweater or vest! I enjoyed it so much I bought more.

                    It knits up beautifully, but it is challenging to knit because of the weight of the yarn. It is worth the effort.
