    This is a beautiful yarn to work with, it knits easily and provides lovely stitch definition. The yarn does tend to split, but this is easy to manage. I made a cowl which has a lovely, soft drape.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Canyon:

        I am knitting a striped tee for myself in this soft and light yarn. It has excellent stitch definition and is soft on the hands to work with. It works up closer to sport weight, for me. The completed fabric has lovely drape. This yarn works well for any garment or item that requires next to the skin softness. I do not know how it behaves after multiple launderings and extended use, thus I gave it only 4stars, however, I plan to use it for more summer tops and a baby blanket!

          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Canyon:

          I used this yarn to make the cardigan "Sweet Cicely" by Tian Foley. I am so pleased with the way it turned out! I bought extra yarn, and now I am trying to decide what to do with the leftovers. I am considering buying a couple more skeins and making a sleeveless shell. The yarn is soft, pliant and comfortable, a delightful blend of pima cotton and alpaca. I love its natural colorways which result in neutrals that will go with anything. It is super easy to knit with, and my swatched washed up beautifully. If you are considering a summer top, I highly recommend this reasonably priced yarn!

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Canyon:

            I don't know yet if it going to pill or fuzz up, but other than that I love this yarn. I would buy bags of it if I could, as it is perfect for light lacy warm-season accessories - little scarves and such which knit up fast and make good gifts. Nice to work with and nice against the skin. (Note - "Cerro" is the dyed version of this. The same but colours.)

                Your Canyon is just right. I will make use of it another day. I loved making the shawl with two tones of it. It worked out just right.

                Made an early fall 3/4 length sleeve sweater for my daughter. The yarn is easy to work with and knits up very nicely.

                    I adore this yarn!!! I've made three tops with it so far and plan to do more. It feels wonderful to knit and wear. I've washed my tops multiple times and they look and feel better each time. No shedding, stretching, or pilling.

                      I always love Classic Elite Yarns and I have been on a cotton kick for a while. Now it's the best of two worlds, cotton and alpaca (my other favorite)! The yarn tends to split easily but that is completely forgiven when you see and feel how beautifully it knits. I would love to make a bedspread in it just so I could wrap myself up in it!
