Our palette of 8 soft, classic colors will make this yarn a favorite for every knitter and crocheter. Unlike other chenille yarns, Gelato will not "worm", and the finished project will not shed.

I love the Gelato Yarn especially for a baby blanket. The balls are a bit smaller so order extra.
I really like this yarn!! It glides off my hook and no problem at all with splitting!! I want all the colors!!
This is the second item I am now knitting with this yarn. I knitted a small blanket for my grandson and it was so soft and cuddly my daughter in law asked me to knit a cot blanket in the same yarn. After much unsuccessful searching for a UK source, I had to buy it direct from Premier Yarns. Parcel well packaged and I was able to track my package. The main delay was in the UK as I had to pay vat and the Post Office handling charge, which added somewhat to the cost and the package couldn't be delivered until I'd paid it. Overall though, I would buy this yarn again, if it became available.
I love this yarn. Making a baby blanket. It's soft and easy to crochet. Love Premier Yarns.
The colors and softness quality is wonderful! You can't beat the prices either.
