what is a Classic Elite Pirouette yarn
CORRECTION: the title question should read "what is a suitable garment to make with..."
I just received 12 skeins of this beautiful pink kid mohair bamboo yarn. Don't want to make a scarf. Would like to make something to wear. Will it work for something like a shrug? Recommended needle size is a range from 3 to 8!

A scarf IS something to wear...

Because its a lace weight yarn it's well suited for a shawl although a shrug might work. Needle size 3-8 would make it very lacy. If you want a tighter fabric you'll have to go down to a 1 or less probably.

Here's some projects made with it. Be sure to read what yarn was used because people sometimes change that w/o correcting the project.

These projects were all made with lace weight yarns.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
