We are happy to add Sanibel to our wall of spring and summer yarns.  New from Classic Elite Yarns, Sanibel is a worsted weight 42% cotton/ 58% viscose tape that alternates from shiny to matte throughout the ball.  It has a wonderful drape, it's very soft and the colors are delicious!

 We have all 12 colors in stock, pictured above are some of our favorites.  From top to bottom: Cerulean, French Rose, Shrimp, Pistachio, Maize and Ivory.

Pattern Ideas:
 The Sanibel Lace Shawl is a free pattern from Classic Elite Yarns.  
Pictured here in color Redwood, 4 balls.

 A triangular shawl worked from the bottom tip up in a simple lace pattern.  The perfect summer shawl.

Check out the latest Classic Elite booklet, Sanibel # 9767.  It's filled with 6 summery designs all knit using Sanibel. Captiva pictured above is an open cardigan worked from the bottom up in one piece to the armholes with a nice wide rib band.
