Gedifra's Elba is a wonderful yarn for quick summer knits. It's 100% cotton yarn that's smooth and easy to knit. Elba is a tape yarn, that lies flat in your fabric, so although it's a chunky gauge, you won't find it thick or heavy.
Although you cannot tell without looking really closely, Elba is an unusually constructed tape yarn - not woven, but knit. It's actually a tube knit from a very very fine strand of cotton for strength, durability, and sheen. You will enjoy working with it, and you will find the fabric extremely comfortable to wear. We are using Elba in our summer version of Cocoknits Emma
For a sweater, I like Elba on a US 11, but you could easily go much larger for a light and fun accessory.
