Classic Elite Fresco Yarn - 5303 Cinder Reviews

Classic Elite Fresco Yarn - 5303 Cinder
5303 Cinder shown $11.95
Fresco is a smooth and even 3-ply sport weight yarn. The plies are twisted together tightly enough to make a firm, springy yarn, but not so tightly that the yarn looses its lofty, soft hand. The fiber blend - wool (for warmth and strength), alpaca (for loft and sheen), and a bit of angora (to provide a soft halo) - makes a yarn that's warm, soft, and slightly fuzzy.

Love. 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I am making the two color mittens. It is working up beautifully. It has a nice soft fuzziness to it.

Fantastic Yarn! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I just completed a nordic sweater (pattern by Dale of Norway) in this yarn. This is a fantastic yarn for colorwork! I am buying some more to knit another sweater in it. The pictures don't depict how wonderfully it knits up--perfect, even stiches, that make you look like a better knitter then you are. Additionally the 10% angora give it a very feminine soft, fuzzy, look and feel.
