I love the dark blue/green color but it bled onto my hands while I was knitting. I have used Silky Alpaca before in lighter colors and never had this problem. Webs advised me to do a vinegar wash on the yarn, but I should not have to do that.. I guess a test swatch is in my future.

I really do love the loft, weight, feel and sheen of the Silky Alpaca and hope this was just a bad batch. I am not giving up on a product I have enjoyed so much in the past.

    This is the second time I've purchased this yarn for the same project, and I love it. It's fine yarn, so takes more time to knit up, but have been very happy with the finished product.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace:

        This is not a "sticky yarn" (no wool) so it unravels quickly. This can be a disaster with lace knitting where the pattern is not obvious. If you're in the outer reaches of a circular shawl, be sure to run waste yarn through a round now and then. If you "lose it", you can save yourself many days of work.

          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace:

          I used this yarn to knit a long scarf. The pattern called for doubling the yarn. I think I could have used just a single strand or two different colors together to make a tweed. This yarn is very versatile.

              Delivery was prompt but I had to email in to get a notification of shipping as it does not happen with international (Canada) customers.
              Yarn was securely packaged
