      Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

      I love this yarn, it's so soft. I ordered three and ended up returning one because it was more yellow than I cared for "Seedling Green," Dye lot 62187. Wish I could purchase it locally, but since I can't, this is a great way to get it.

        Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

        I really like the feel and handling of this yarn. I knit a jumper for my daughter who lives in Seattle. She chose the pattern and is thrilled with it so I am knitting another in green with a fleck of yellow that gives it a little light to the green. Although it is not machine washable I expect it will not be hard to launder by hand. I discovered a mistake and had to pull out about 4 inches. It came out smooth and was easy to pick up and go on.

            I've used this in Denim--my daughter's fav. First made beanies, then bracelets, then headband. She wants EVERYTHING in this color and yarn...fingerless mittens, leg warmers, vest, sweater (uh, sweater, not until I get better LOL). The color is truly beautiful and, for some reason, it looks even more vibrant in sunlight.

                    This yarn was so beautiful in the shawl I knitted that I promptly ordered more in another color for a different shawl.
