This yarn was suggested for the Chevron Baby Blanket pattern by Purl Soho. At first I was hesitant to purchase such expensive yarn that is advertised as hand-wash, but considering a baby blanket becomes an heirloom and sometimes a photo prop, I decided it was worth the splurge. I am so happy I took the leap of faith! The organic cotton is perfect for baby items and this yarn is incredibly soft. The cats always love my knitting projects, but I literally couldn't get my cat to stop using this yarn as her pillow as I knitted. I couldn't stop petting the blanket as I transitioned from color to color. The yarn is tight as cotton often is, but I did not have the problem other knitters mentioned with wrist pain. I did consciously adapt my knitting to be a bit looser to help counteract the pressure from the cotton yarn. It blocked beautifully using the steam blocking method and the colors are incredible. The first blanket I made used Azul, Lemonade, Drift, Stone and Jasper. I have already ordered more yarn for a baby girl's blanket - Raspberry, Pink Parfait, Drift, Dandelion and Sleet.

While the colors are gorgeous and the yarn is soft, I found this yarn to be very difficult to work with as it has no stretch whatsoever. Perhaps part of the problem was I used too small a needle size, but I went with what gave me the correct gauge, which in retrospect was a huge mistake. But I was using a pattern that called for this yarn and I've never really had a problem with my gauge being off. I had to use so much pressure to knit with this yarn that my fingers and hands became sore - I totally understand the previous reviewer who said that she has two broken wrists. In the process of fighting with the yarn, it frequently split, especially on the crocheted border. Plus, one of the skeins had frayed yarn in two places. Finally, the manufacturer recommends dry cleaning!

                    This was the recommended yarn for the chevron baby blanket pattern I have. I made my first one for a friend's grandson. It turned out great and the new mom loved it. When I found out my niece is expecting identical twin girls, I thought I'd make this pattern again using the same 5 colors but different stripe color order. I love how they've turned out.

                          Blue Sky Alpaca organic cotton, worsted weight, is ideal for baby blankets. Soft, warm, colorful, they envelop a youngster from babyhood to pre-teen, or until the yarn wears through. The. One can easily repair them. "Comforting" is my pick for best adjective, for both knitter and recipient!
