      I used this yarn as part of a multi-colored modular sweater. The color is clear and bright; the texture is as soft as down. I want more! I would absolutely consider this product for future projects.

            Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Melange:

            I bought this to knit a hat and then felt. It is so soft on the hands while knitting. The pattern called for 2 strands of yarn - one sport and one fingering weight. I used this yarn and Merino wool yarn. The pattern knitted quickly and with little trouble. When felted, the final product was as thick as I expected but didn't hold the form as well as I thought. It's a little too floppy. When I do this again, I'll use 2 yarns of sport weight to give a little more structure. Would buy this yarn again in a heartbeat. Love it!

              Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Melange:

              Crocheted an infinity scarf and the result was soft and luxurious. The yarn was easy to work with and gave great stitch definition even with a heavy halo. Each skein seemed a bit uneven as to the tightens of the strand. Some thick, some were thinner. It made keeping an even gauge difficult. This would change between skeins and Was uneven within the same skein. I had to keep the tension very tight to get a good result. But it was totally worth it because the end result was a gorgeous scarf that felt good around my neck. Not at all scratchy! Love it!

                I love color work but I also love cables and this is perfect for both, It works well with other alpaca and alpaca blend yarns and the colors are really well done, subtle yet vibrant heathers. feels like a soft kitten while knitting and has a lovely drape and feel after knitting.

                I've used this yarn for hats and cowls. It is extremely soft. Not the yarn you want if you're looking for rigidity, but if soft and squishy is what you're looking for, this yarn is lovely. On a negative note: I used this yarn to line merino wool mittens and it stretched so much, I have to remake the linings. Beautiful colour selection.

                  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.
