Welcome Classic Elite Yarns to our Online Shop
More patterns and yarn are in our online shop - take a look at Classic Elite Yarns' Firefly and Silky Alpaca Lace.
Firefly is sport weight rayon and linen blend knitting and crochet yarn. It's a warm-weather yarn with a subtle sheen and wonderful hand. The juxtaposition of the linen with a light-catching sheen gives it a distinctly feminine look. Firefly drapes wonderfully at a wide range of gauges - knit loosely for elegant lace or more tightly for stockinette fabrics. This yarn can grow, so we highly recommend a gague swatch, and a good soak once finished.
Patterns we love with Firefly include:
- The Firefly Scarf by Kristen TenDyke. We love the lacey pattern and the fact that it can be worn year-round as an accessory.
- This Firefly Dayflower Shawl from Amy Loberg is gorgeous - and with all the fun colors available for Firefly, this yarn is a perfect fit.
Silky Alpaca Lace is a lace weight alpaca and silk blend knitting and crochet yarn spun into a wonderful mix that knits into amazing lightweight pieces. The alpaca in this yarn provides warmth and a soft halo; the silk adds a subtle sheen to the stitches. Worked in lace with larger needles or hooks, Silky Alpaca Lace makes lovely, light-as-air shawls, garments and accessories.
We thought these were good match-ups with Silky Alpaca Lace:
- We couldn't resist putting in a lacy shawl - we just loved this Swallowtail Shawl by Evelyn A. Clark.
- And we didn't want to leave out our crochet lovers out there, take a look at this Summer Springs Lace Scarf by Esther Chandler.
