Product details

It’s really unusual to find a bulky weight yarn that feels as weightless as gossamer. Viento is one of the rare few that also keeps its drape perfectly, thanks to its chainette construction and fantastic baby alpaca/bamboo blend. With its sumptuous range of colors, this is must-have yarn.

I bought this to finish two projects I started with Classic Elite's Chalet yarn, a chainette in alpaca and bamboo. The project that I've finished has a cable and rib pattern, the cables have nice definition, and the finished sweater is very stretchy and comfortable. It knit up quickly with the larger needles and bulky weight. The Viento is an exact match for that yarn, the undyed colors are clearly from the same group of alpacas, because if I take off the labels and mix them and close my eyes, I can't tell the difference. I am thrilled to be able to finish this project, and I like the yarn very much--it is very light and airy and holds warmth well, the chainette gives a bit of spring or bounce to the alpaca and bamboo, which normally is a very non-springy combination. So you get the drape and slippery quality of alpaca/bamboo, the spring and loft of wool, and the warmth of alpaca, with the chainette making it lightweight. I've not gotten far with the second project, a brioche stitch cardigan in the same yarn, because I have been diverted by other projects, but I am looking forward to working on it.
