Fresco yarn is a smooth and even 3-ply sport weight yarn. The plies are twisted together tightly enough to make a firm, springy yarn, but not so tightly that the yarn loses its lofty, soft hand. The fiber blend—wool (for warmth and strength), alpaca (for loft and sheen), and a bit of angora (to provide a soft halo)—makes a yarn that’s warm, soft, and slightly fuzzy.You will not believe how soft Classic Elite Fresco is! The 6 ½ stitch to the inch gauge makes this yarn perfect for colorwork and delicate projects. You will not be disappointed with this yarn.  Made in Peru.
