      I love this yarn! I knit a striped hooded cardigan and it was hard to decide if I was going to wear it or frame it and hang it on the wall!!! Perfectly said that it behaves more like wool when knitting! As for pilling, if something is lovely soft, that can be a tradeoff that you need only prepare for! Colors are true to the core and throughout the skein and the dye lots. Cannot say enough positive about this yarn!

      I made a sweater with this yarn, while it was beautiful to work with, it pilled so badly with a couple of washings. Very disapointed

        It's soft and a pleasure to knit, even in summer. To my knowledge, it isn't machine-washable, which is unfortunate for a baby project

              I than went back to knit a second blanket with the same yarn. Extremely soft and pleasant to the touch.

                I am using this yarn to knit a baby blanket and it's turning out great. The colors are vibrant, and it's really soft. My one complaint is how hard it was to roll into balls when I received. Thank god my mom was here to help, but even so we struggled. Other than that, I think it's a great yarn.

                  Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton:

                  I'm crocheting an afghan, following the pattern on the cover of Molly Makes Crochet. That pattern calls for much smaller cotton and a size B hook. I'm using size H with the cotton worsted. Combining the colors in the inner circles is such fun! I bought most of the colors from a local yarn shop but didn't like the shade of white they had in stock. I ordered a skein of "bone", liked it, and ordered enough for the project.

                        I recently completed two baby afghans using this yarn. I love how soft and pliable it feels even before washing. Perfect for a baby. The colors are beautiful and vibrant, also. I would use it again for sure and I think it would also be great for a medium weight cotton sweater.

                          I make a sort of patchwork crocheted baby blanket and was looking for something similar to a discontinued yarn I had used. This one is very similar in texture and weight. The only downside is that I can make just two squares from one skein, so it's a little pricier than I'm used to. But I'll be using it anyway because I absolutely love it!

                            This yard is great. The problem I had was with the yardage among different colors. I used seven different colors to knit a baby blanket and each color was knitted to the same size. With some skeins, I had just enough, some had a little extra and others were just a few stitches short. So I ended up having to order extra skeins for just a few stitches.

                            It's an excellent yarn and I'll definitely use it again.
