I love this yarn. The soft texture and the ease of knitting with it is wonderful!

What an amazing yarn for garments!!!

I knitted 2 short sleeve Ts with 5 skanes. I started the first one as a test / practice project because I'm a relatively new knitter, but it turned out to be the best one I've made and didn't take as much yarn as I first thought. So, I ended up knitting another one for my niece., and ordered more to knit a long sleeve sweater!

Pretty Splitty

I find this yarn to be thinner than most #3's that I use, and the yarn is splitty. I am crocheting a mosaic blanket, so maybe this would be better in another item, but won't use it again for this purpose. It is soft.

Soft

I’ve never used alpaca yarn so I can’t compare this to real alpaca. This yarn is very soft, doesn’t feel scratchy, crochets easily and frogs easily as well. It seems like it would drape well as a scarf with a larger hook. Nice yarn!

I hope you're serious!

This yarn is so soft and squishy, and fairly easy to work up - no splitting, has a good slip - color is beautiful and looks like the picture. Feels like it's going to have a really nice drape when finished. The only problem is that once you start, you'd better mean it. It does not frog well. I'll admit, this is my first time using anything like an "alpaca", with fuzz that gets tangled, so I lack experience with that. I'm sure more experienced makers have been there, done that. Just a warning for anyone who hasn't worked with anything like this before! I guess the good news is that I'm not that worried about my project unraveling! ;D
