Classic Elite Yarns




Classic Elite has always been committed to providing beautiful natural fibers to knitters and crocheters. We were once again on the cutting edge with the MountainTop Collection, the newest addition to our family of sustainable yarns. You loved our new yarns spun from undyed fibers and we listened. This fall we're thrilled to expand the MountainTop collection with two more yarns.

The MountainTop Collection is made up of five yarns spun with natural undyed fibers that you have to see and feel to truly appreciate:

  • Blackthorn is a plump, squishy 100 gram hank of alpaca and wool blended into naturally heathered colors (a chunky counterpart to Vista).
  • Chalet is a luxuriously soft yarn with a lovely drape made in a chunky weight with chainette construction. Chalet looks great knit at a wide variety of gauges and textures.
  • Vista and Crestone are two interchangeable worsted weight yarns: Vista is a 50/50 blend of wool and superfine alpaca, and Crestone is 100% wool.
  • Vail is a light fingering yarn in a blend of baby alpaca and bamboo that is pure luxury.

The MountainTop Collection has extensive pattern support. Look for patterns in the following booklets:

Highland Fling in Vista Lure of the West in Crestone Widgeon HIll in Blackthorn
Grace in Vail Appenzell in Chalet Twin Peaks in Vista
Brown Sugar in Vail Zest in Vista Dust of Snow in Vista
