Dream in Color Classy is an incredibly soft worsted weight yarn. It is hand dyed by the great folks at Dream in Color in such a way that you will not get the usual "pooling" associated with hand dyed yarns. Dream in Color Classy is perfect for garments for babies to adults and great for accessories and blankets too!  A new version of Classy was introduced in 2014 that is significantly softer and more vibrant than the original. Yardage, washing instructions, etc. remain the same. New Classy skeins have a new label that has “New Now Softer” marked on it. Spun & hand-dyed in the USA.

Please note: Each skein of Dream in Color Classy is unique. There are no dye lots and skeins may vary.

Love this yarn!

Although I'm not finished with the vest yet, I get compliments whenever I'm out in public knitting it. People can hardly believe how beautiful the color is - Atomic Blue you rock!

I bought 6 skeins of Blue Lagoon to make a Mondo Cable Cardi by Chic Knits. As with many super-wash yarns, the washed swatch did grow some so be sure to complete a full-sized swatch to obtain proper gauge. I alternated two skeins every other row, but the intensity of the dyes was so different between skeins that the sleeves are noticeably lighter. Knots were in three skeins, one of which had three knots. This is a particularly bad problem in a super-wash wool with a sweater knitted in one piece because it is difficult to splice the yarn and difficult to invisibly weave in the ends.

Any one of these issues alone might have been acceptable, but in a premium yarn, it is really unsatisfactory. I emailed the manufacturer, but never received a response. The sweater is soft and comfortable, and I hope I forget the process of knitting the yarn soon. The problems would be less noticeable in small projects or multi-colored projects. Lighter colors may bleed less.

    Disappointment in color

    By 

    from Albany ny

    Comments about true Classy:

    Made a lap blanket with color November muse. I do know that hand dyed will produce variations. However when blanket was finished & ready to be blocked I noticed a best described a bloching of a much lighter color. It almost looked like something had inadvertently been laid across the yarn to prevent the color absorption. Especially disappointing since this was a gift. I tried to contact the company 3 times via their web site at the contact section with no response to my specific request for contact. Disappointing product for high end price & poor customer service

    This was the first time I used Dream in Color yarn. The yarn was very easy to work with, and the colors are INCREDIBLE! I made a hat for my friend, and wherever she wears it, she gets compliments. My next project using this yarn is an off-the-shoulder sweater. I'm psyched!!!!

      Comments about true Classy:

      This was my first time using this yarn. I purchased it for a MKAL for a cabled ribbed kids sweater so I was looking for something easy to work with and soft. This had it all, the yarn is smooth and soft without being too slippery, held the color beautifully and turned a somewhat simple pattern into a luscious garment that makes me want to buy more to knit my own.

              I'm making a vest for my husband for Christmas and the 1947 pattern calls for #s 1 and 3 knitting needles so it's slow going but I love the color (Atomic Blue), even if it does come off onto my hands as I'm knitting.
