      I used this for a sweater and love the lightness of the yarn and its warmth. I hope it does not pill, being a softer fiber.

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Color by Kristin:

      This yarn is really a great bargain (purchased it on a Steve's Deal of the Day). I do admit I did not read the yardage so was a little surprised by the small skeins but there was plenty of yarn to do two-color hats. I have been crocheting with it and it slides smoothly on the hook and doesn't split. The fiber combination is so soft. I will definitely buy this yarn again.

      • Doesn't Split Or Untwist
      • Even Dye Great Colors
      • Soft

      Cons

      • Hand wash
      • Stitch Definition Poor

      Best Uses

      • Gloves
      • Hats
      • Mittens
      • Scarves
      • Sweaters

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Color by Kristin:

      This yarn is very forgiving when one must pull out and reknit rows/rounds. It is soft so it is good for wearing next to the skin. It is a really great all-purpose worsted weight yarn. The color choices are excellent, and it is beautifully and evenly dyed. Two draw backs are: 1) It is hand wash only and 2) Stitch definition is poor. I am currently making a poncho for my daughter, so it is still in progress. This yarn has become my go-to yarn for many, many things.
