Classic Elite Yarns




Classic Elite Yarns had its origin in the late 1940s as part of an old-line textile manufacturing mill in Lowell, MA. In the 1980s, CEY began presenting at industry trade shows and producing collections of handknitting designs – and the new company also began to make the pages of international fashion magazines.

After nearly 40 years, Classic Elite Yarns has closed its doors (read more on the CEY blog). Thank you for your support throughout the years, and for loving CEY's yarns as much as their creators have! We hope you have many happy years of knitting in your future.
