        I used this yarn for felted patches on a cotton cardigan and then embroidered the patches. It looks beautiful. Pattern is from "Lovely Little Things to Knit & Crochet" by Mags Kandis.

          Beautiful and luxurious; so fun to knit; a tiny bit of shedding. Perfect for a special gift item.

                  I added this yarn to my "go to" list today when cleaning our the stash organizing all those swatches. The colors are gorgeous and the dye lots are really even between purchases. I knit it between 19/26 and 24/32 with great results on needles US size 3 - 7. The drape is beautiful, BUT, this yarn ha some "sproing" despite the alpaca content and excellent memory. It is as soft as cashmere. No itch whatsoever. Not good for summer knits even at the lower gauge b/c it knits a really warm garment that keeps off wind, damp and makes that wintry chill go completely away without wearing a really heavy garment. Excellent for scarves, mufflers and very fitted garments or vests b/c there is no "bulk" as well as drapey knits. Great for lace, bobbles and cables too. Pill factor is minimal. Decent yardage for the price and the quality. Pomegranate and Salsa are my favorite colors. The luminosity of the yarn does not show on the monitor.

                    Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Melange:

                    The best yarn I've ever used, and I have very expensive, almost snobby taste when it comes to fibers. I made a slouchy hat from this, using a simple extended beanie seed-stitch pattern, and EVERYONE loves it. I was in a knitting shop the other day and 8 separate people asked for the pattern, and the kind of yarn that it's made from. I taught my roommate to knit so she could make the same hat, from this yarn. If you double up, this yarn is a luxurious heft, and you can really feel the texture of a stitch like seed or moss. I'm planning my next project, a long robe, from this yarn, for me with a big piece like this, there's no other choice.

                      The first vest I made with the Blue Sky Alpaca was in the eggplant. My friend liked it so much that I'm making her one in the pretty light blue/teal. As with the eggplant, the color in person is a lot deeper than the color you see on the web site. It's lovely yarn - great drape, no knots, not itchy and I'm allergic to wool. I'd give it a five-star rating but it does have the hairs which I wish it didn't.

                        I am making my 20 year old daughter a 'blankie'. This fiber far exceeds cashmere in softness. The drape is beautiful, and has a soft, baby light feel to it. It holds the pattern well. I had never worked with this fiber before, and would recommend it again and again. I am all ready thinking what I can make next with this fiber. I have attached a picture of a strip of the blankie...
