Bellissima

Bellissima is a beautiful multi-end yarn with fantastic stitch definition, making it perfect for a whole range of techniques and styles, from classic garments to textures and cables. Knits like a merino with the practicality and value for money of an acrylic yarn. This yarn is also available as Bambino, a baby quality with yet more shades that you could use in combination with Bellissima.
