      Comments about Ironstone Yarns Super Alpaca:

      When I first received this yarn, I have to admit I sat down and just pet the yarn. It was so soft! It was like getting a new kitty - maybe a miniature alpaca that doesn't spit, or eat, or...

      The color twist and texture made me instantly decide this was just right for a sweater I've been dying to make for myself. I have knitted a swatch, but haven't started on the full sweater yet. The knitting is fast due to needle and yarn size. All in all this was a wonderful purchase.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The shipping and delivery were no problem what so ever. It actually arrived before I thought it would.

            First time I bought yarn online and first time I knitted something for myself, a beautiful shawl collar cardigan from [@]. I LOVE this yarn! Its soft and fast to knit and while I was uneasy about the color changes they are subtle and provide real beauty. I would have prefered more steady color instead so 4 stars not 5, but my sweater is gorgeous and my kiddos love to hug me when I wear it because its so cozy!
