The first time I knit with Provence, many many years ago, I had to check the label after the first couple of rows. The label said it was 100% cotton but it felt so silky and smooth I thought there had to be some silk. But no, Provence is 100% silky smooth mercerized Egyptian cotton. Provence has been in the Classic Elite collection since the early 1990's and there are many great patterns using this yarn. We've put together an ebook of four of our favorite Provence sweaters.
