      Very nice hand, shows stitch definition at a tighter gauge, there is a halo(shed) effect with alpca that is beautiful but you need to be aware of it.

          I've just started a sweater for myself and this yarn is awesome! It doesn't split even with my sharp needles. It's so soft and I'm sure it's going to warm without being bulky.
          I love this yarn and will order it again.....great price too!

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Inca Alpaca Discontinued Colors:

            This yarn is so soft that it falls off metal needles...plastic or bamboo is better. Otherwise it knits wonderfully. However, I bought a saphire color and it comes off on my fingers.

              I crochet accessories such as hats, cowls, sweaters, capes,scarves, collars, mittens, gloves. It is a very soft, hypoallergenic fiber that has an extremely warm characteristic. Great for the northern winters.

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Inca Alpaca Discontinued Colors:

              This yarn is so soft, it is wonderful to feel and knit with. The drape is fantastic, but as with all 100% alpaca yarn, the yarn is rather inflexible and has no stretch to it. If you are looking for a drapey yarn, this is it. If you want body, this is not it. The colors are fantastic and there are no problems with fading or shading.
