Portofino Add to My Favorites
"Portofino" from Needful Yarns is the ideal warm-weather choice for all your tops, sweaters, ponchos and accessories. If you're looking for a colorful, lightweight, nylon-blend eyelash yarn for spring and summer fashions, look no further! "Portofino" takes glisten and glimmer and combines them with the softness of Tactel nylon, to produce a cozily soft, multi-textured, boldly colored yarn. Made in Italy of 65% nylon & 35% Tactel. With such lovely hues, even the simplest design looks magnificent!

I crocheted 2 very narrow scarves of my own design from 1 skein of Portofino #422 novelty yarn. The colors are quite BEAUTIFUL -- pale green, turquoise & purple. It's a FUN eyelash polyester yarn, IDEAL for a bit of "sparkle" to any outfit! Easy to work up. I bought only remaining skein on clearance at Discontinued Brand Name Yarns website in January 2013. I LOVE it-- I wear one scarf & one I gifted to a close friend!
