    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande Tweed:

    I used this yarn to make a large cowl as a gift, and like my other baby alpaca yarns, it has a beautiful soft drape and a halo of fuzz, and also sheds quite a bit. I have not worn any of my own knits yet in this yarn, but based on what came off of it while knitting and phogographing on a dress form, I suspect it will shed on the giftee's coat. It may be worth it because it's such a beautiful tweed, I can't speak yet to how well it will wash or wear over time. The baby alpaca yarns I've tried so far are Plymouth and Misti Alpaca, and they both are incredibly soft and yet have a bit of a scratchy factor for me, as well, it's a weird yarn paradox. I don't think I could wear this yarn around my neck, but I'm really sensitive. Probably would be perfect for a hat, something that doesn't get a lot of friction on other clothing, etc.

      Comments about Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande Tweed:

      This winter my son (in Chicago) requested a quick, warm, soft blanket.
      Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande Tweed fit his parameters: SOFT, SOFT, SOFT, and preferably tweedy.
      I loved it so much I used the leftovers for a quick and cute pullover for myself.

      This would not make a good long scarf or sweater as it sheds like mad and sticks to wool and you are a mess.

          Fabulous super bulky yarn. Made a cardigan for a cousin, double cables, seed stitch, definition is wonderful and it's soft and very bulky. Hope he likes it!

            I used this soft lovely tweed yarn in two colors, black and white, to make a beanie for an artist (male) friend of mine. He loves the hat. This yarn is soft and easy to knit - I made a simple beanie mostly using the black version of this yarn with a broad stripe of the white version of this same yarn. I would love to experiment with felting this yarn as well at some point (-:
