This is the first time I have used Classic Silk and I am in love. It is not soft like alpaca or a fine merino but it drapes so beautifully I can forgive it. I also love the slight nubbiness of the yarn - the texture is very appealing. It does stretch a little and I am glad it did because I needed it to block out longer. I am very pleased with this product and will use it again.

Used for baby booties, bootees. Purchased on sale. Found to be lack luster and coarse. Should have read the "raw silk and cotton" content more carefully, was like working with kitchen twine. Classic Elite name is deceiving, at least to me.

  • Dish Cloths

Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk:

I ordered this yarn in April or May in Cool Cranberry, but changed my color choice to Red Grape in late July, because it was on backorder -& still is. With the silk content, I thought it would be a perfect yarn for a top I could wear most of the year. It is unevenly dyed -has white spots running through it- & stretched so much when washed & blocked, my shell is unwearable. I tried washing it again & putting it into the dryer & it grew across even more & ruined the finished bottom. Every stitch I fixed (changed from knit to purl or vice versa) is obvious, because it stretches so much.

I have three unused skeins I cannot return -the pattern called for ~1,000 yards & it only took 675- so I am stuck with over 400 yards of expensive, poorly dyed dishcloth cotton.

          I wanted to make a baby item; the pattern called for this and it's anything but soft, nor did it look good. It was thick and bulky . I wasn't please with the stitches and all in all was disappointed. The colors are fabulous and again i was making something that they shouldn't have suggested that yarn for

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Classic Silk:

            I love the feel of this yarn! The luster of silk is lost when it is blended with cotton, but you gain a soft, cushy, springy yarn that is a joy to knit and wear.
