The newest yarn from Classic Elite, Calista, has amazing texture due to it’s construction, it’s actually a crocheted chain! This DK weight yarn is 100% mercerized cotton which gives it a lovely sheen, and is lightweight enough for beautiful summer garments. Think sweaters, tanks and wraps.
Classic Elite Firefly has been with us for a few years but they’ve added some new colors for 2016. A wonderful blend of Viscose and linen, with a slightly nubby texture, Firefly works up into a fabric with a beautiful, glowing sheen and the drape is incredible too. There are plenty of sophisticated summer garments in the Wooded Glen Collection, perfect for showcasing this yarn’s unique features.
There’s no better time to dream about, and plan for, those warm summer days. What warm weather knits do you have on your needles?
