Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 412 – Linda's Pullover

Song, our new cotton/wool yarn, was introduced this past July and we at Classic Elite can't stop designing new knits in it! The fiber content is perfect for year round wear and year round designing. Look for four new colors in Song coming soon for Spring 2016.

This week's Web-Letter is a classic pullover with all over cables. It was designed and knit by Linda, our design coordinator and knitting manager. Here's what she had to say:

I had a similar sweater that was a favorite for many years. I wore out the elbows beyond repair and the cuffs and neckline began to unravel. I tried a number of yarns that did not quite fit my vision for a new cabled sweater. Then Song came along - perfect weight with wonderful stitch definition, and comfortable wearability - need I say more! Now I am ready for fall!

The Yarn

50% cotton, 50% wool


Cotton and wool combine in this simply luxurious dk weight yarn in a sophisticated palette. The wool and cotton fibers are blended before spinning then eight plies are twisted together resulting in a smooth, silken yarn with excellent stitch definition. Perfect for year round wear, whether cables, lace, colorwork or plain stockinette, Song does it all beautifully! Understated and elegant, Song is a yarn you will want to return to again and again.
