Bella Lino

I'm excited about a new yarn coming from Classic Elite for spring. Actually, it should be in the store at the end of next week (January 16th or 17th).
Bella Lino is a lightweight yarn that creates an airy fabric with long, harmonious stripes. The palette of summery shades each have a linen-hued base. 
Colorful stripes adorn the natural linen colored background of Bella Lino and the linen blend takes dye beautifully. It knits at a similar gauge to Firefly and is interchangeable with Firefly in many patterns.  
A linen, viscose and cotton blend. Mixed colours. What more can we ask for?

And the colour range is fabulous. See all 11 shades...

We have the following colours coming. If you want one that I haven't ordered, please let me know and we can get it for you.


There will be a pattern book coming with 4 patterns in Bella Lino and 8 patterns in other popular Classic Elite yarns.
The Oceanside collection focuses on bright, summery garments and wraps. It also features ethereal knits in our favorite lightweight yarns. In this pattern book we also welcome Bella Lino to our family of outstanding yarns with four patterns.
Don't forget that the new Classic Elite pattern books have the coolest thing. You scratch, like a lottery ticket, to get a code for a downloadable copy of the book. You have the best of both worlds. A print copy to flip through and a PDF copy on your iPad to knit from.

What made me think of Bella Lino today? Classic Elite's Web-Letter just arrived in my In Box with a pattern for a wrap in Bella Lino.
A truly simple knit, this wrap showcases the stripes and drape of Bella Lino perfectly. Easily customizable – knit any width and length you desire.

It is going to be an awesome spring in the knitting/crochet world.
