Great Lace Yarn

Made a lacy pullover. The yarn is tightly twist (not splitty) and no knots in all three skeins.

It would be helpful if you let a customer know when you cannot fill the entire order. My recent order was for a specific project, without the required amount this yarn will go into stash. Nota tragedy but ai likely would have ordered something else if I had known you couldn't supply what I needed.

    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Discontinued Colors:

    I picked up several balls of this, in an array of colours. I had a simple scarf pattern on my phone and thought "Well, it wasn't too expensive, so if I hate it, I'm not out much." Let me tell you, I absolutely do *NOT* hate it! Six inches into the scarf and I ordered more of it. It's well-spun so it's not too splitty, it doesn't shed a lot, the colours are vivid and consistent (I didn't find any blank or poorly dyed spots anywhere, even in the variegated spots). One 50gr. ball of yarn made a 9x72" scarf, and the yarn shows outstanding detail - the nupps came out a treat!

    The only negative I can think of is that it is slippery...but of course it's alpaca and silk, so that's a given. I found the Addi Turbo Lace had just enough bite to them to keep the stitches from slipping off the needles (providing I could keep my cats away from them).

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Discontinued Colors:

      I have used classic elite yarn for 4 years and it makes beautiful knitted lace shawls. I have just started adding beads and have found a Czech bead that matches the yarn.

      lace yarn for another look

      Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Discontinued Colors:

      This is a beautiful yarn regardless of the color ways; it is best to just knit up a plain stocknit stitch fabric in the simplest form. I intend to add beads to the knit to give it some weight and surprise fun; the yarn lends itself for this adornment. It is light and beautiful for summer wear.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Discontinued Colors:

        I have used this yarn for weaving. It is strong enough for warp, yet soft enough to be worn next to the skin. I comes in a wide range of jewel-like colors and develops a perfect halo, softening the pattern beautifully. This was a repeat purchase because it suits my purposes for nicely.

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Discontinued Colors:

            The only negative that I had with this purchase is that the color representation on the website was so completely different from what I received in the mail that I had to return it!

            Although I've had excellent service in the past, I was very disappointed in WEBS because, even though the representative acknowledged that the color on the website was vastly different, I was only refunded for the cost of the yarn and not the shipping (even though the representative instructed me to write in on the return that this was the case and that often times they will refund shipping based on this discrepancy).

                  Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Discontinued Colors:

                  Although this fabulous mocha brown color has been discontinued (I knew I should have gotten more!) I will be buying more Silky Lace Alpaca for scarves, shawls and sweaters in the future. Sure, there is a little bit of shedding, but it's alpaca. (It's hardly noticeable, but some people do not like any shedding.) It's very soft, not splitty and easy to rip out and re-do errors. The price made the choice an absolute bargain, but even at the regular price I'd be interested. I'm not finished with my shawl yet, so I can't comment on how it wears over time.
