Classic Elite Fresco Yarn - 5310 Regatta Reviews

Classic Elite Fresco Yarn - 5310 Regatta
5310 Regatta 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.

Soft and sensuous 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I bought this one on sale and got it in a neutral gray tone. I LOVE IT. It is soft, strong, and has just the right ratio of wool to alpaca to make it scrumptiously soft without making it non-stretch as alpaca is prone to be. Because the wool has excellent stitch definition and stretches enough to be forgiving, you can use this yarn for absolutely any type of project and get the luxury feeling of the alpaca next to your skin. My only complaint is that each skein is only about 165 yards, making it a bit more expensive for larger products.

This is just totally delightful yarn to work with. I am loving it!! Soft, squishy, with wonderful feel and drape. I certainly would buy more.

Fresco is to die for! 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
I love Fresco, it is so soft and the angora content is lovely. I am going to start a sweater in sugar blue, which isn't a babyish color. I consider it sophisticated. It has a nice, even hand, and a wonderful fabric, but if you're going to knit a large piece in stockinette go down in needle size. Go for fresco!
