I love the colors available. I love the feel of the yarn, the speed of the chunky and the way the finished projects look. I have purchased upwards of 25 skeins of this yarn in different colors -- some with the thread of sparkle. I have made at least 10 pairs of fingerless mitts with it and now have 11 skeins of purple ready to go into a sweater for myself -- I am going to be using a Plymouth pattern for this long length cardigan sweater!

Loved this color, made a cowl, every time I got up from knitting I was covered in fuzz, going have to be careful what I wear this cowl with.

SO soft -- used for scarves -- turned out beautifully. Does shed a little, which is the only downside.

              My grand daughter sent me a cowl pattern and the knit shop lady helped me substitute this product for the one the pattern called for and it has worked out beautifully. I have made eight already for Christmas gifts! Great yarn!

              Comments about Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande:

              I have fallen totally in love with this yarn. I have only started knitting since last year but quickly realized how nicely Alpaca and Merino wools feel. I am turning into a real yarn snob I think as I enjoy knitting so much more with these yarns. The baby alpaca yarns are fantastic and this one is the best of them all. All alpaca yarns shed some but for the enjoyment you get, who cares. Beautiful colors and it makes up so nicely everything turns out professionally done.
