"Operadarte" by Filatura Di Crosa is a great quick-to-create sensational ribbon yarn with a dramatic name. Constructed with one edge as a traditional ladder and the other with a scalloped mohair accent, this yarn knits and crochets up two ways: you can either knit or crochet in the open ladder spaces periodically for self ruffling. Or you can knit & crochet it as a traditional ribbon yarn with added texture. Either way "Operadarte" works up into stunning accessories, scarves, shawls, bags, hats, tops and more. Spectacularly crafted in Italy of 39% wool, 39% acrylic, 13% nylon & 9% kid mohair.
