CLASSIC ELITE YARNS - blog feature on MillaMia are very fortunate to have found an incredibly well-respected company to distribute MillaMia in the US. Our partners, Classic Elite Yarns, have been long established in America as a provider of exquisite yarns and beautiful patterns, originating in the 1940's as the marketing division of a textile manufacturing mill based in Lowell, MA. The evolution from manufacturing business to a distributor of fine hand-knitting yarn and designs has seen Classic Elite Yarns develop into the world renowned brand that it is today - and we are very proud to be a part of it!

The range of yarns that CEY offer is extensive, covering some 42 different weights and blends with a vast array of colour and texture. With everything from alpaca fingering weight - Alpaca Sox, to a beautiful cotton and silk blend perfect for the coming summer months - Classic Silk, and one of my own favourites - Fresco, a lovely 3ply mix of wool, baby alpaca and angora - there is something luxurious for every project and every knitter.


The pattern support for all Classic Elite Yarn is exemplary too. Here are just a few pictures of some of their current designs, but there are also free patterns available when you sign up to their newsletter and plenty of opportunity to join the CEY family on Ravelry, FaceBook and you can also follow on Twitter.

The CEY blog has featured a very lovely piece on MillaMia this month - you can read all about Katarina, her love of knitting and inspiration over at the Classic Elite Yarns Blog. Many thanks to the team at Classic Elite for featuring us on your blog, and for all your continuing support and enthusiasm!
