        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco Discontinued Colors:

        I'd always wanted to try this yarn and decided to buy it for a two-color stranded hat. First off, it is buttery soft and slides on and off the needles effortlessly. The color is beautiful and was amazingly close to what I expected. I will definitely buy this yarn again for future projects.

          Very nice and easy to work with. I am making a baby sweater with it but I think it would work great for anything wearable because it feels so nice!

                Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco Discontinued Colors:

                I have knit hats, scarves and shawls with Fresco. I love its softness yet the wool content holds shape very well. The angora produces a lovely halo but does not obscure colorwork. The color is very even and the yarn is well-spun.

                  Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Fresco Discontinued Colors:

                  It's perfect for the baby cardigan I am knitting. It's got a lovely subtle halo that I suspect will grow when blocked, but it's not too fuzzy. Does not appear to shed as much as I feared it might.
