Classic Elite Yarns had its origin in the late 1940s as part of an old-line textile manufacturing mill in Lowell, MA. Classic Elite was created as a marketing division of the mill and catered to hand weavers and designers. At the same time, the brand expanded beyond its original iconic mohairs to include cottons, silks, alpacas, wools and natural fiber blends. Today Classic Elite Yarns is owned, managed and staffed primarily by women, and is no longer in the manufacturing business. Instead it focuses on distributing fine handknitting yarns from numerous international mills. Classic Elite Yarns prides itself on distributing some of the best hand knitting yarns to shops all across the US and Canada. In addition to providing exemplary customer service.
