      Comments about Frog Tree Alpaca Sport:

      This alpaca yarn has gorgeous, saturated color that is even throughout each skein and dye lot. The yarn has an excellent hand, or feel, to it, very soft and slightly springy. It knits easily and allows for easy corrections. I knitted a scarf using the cream color for myself and a scarf for my husband in purple, and am planning to buy more. Alpaca, if you've never used it, is a lightweight fiber that is very warm for its weight and does not have lanolin. If you're allergic to lanolin (as I am) and cannot use sheep's or lamb's wool, this is a perfect fiber to try.

        Comments about Frog Tree Alpaca Sport:

        I knitted a beautiful lacy scarf with this yarn, and it turned out perfectly. I love alpaca so much because I am allergic to lanolin and can't use any wool from sheep or lambs. Alpaca has a natural softness and loft that lends itself to the most beautiful scarves, shawls, and throws. Frog Tree Alpaca is one of the best yarns, there are no breaks in the skeins, no tangles, and the dyes are even, with deep, rich colors.

          Comments about Frog Tree Alpaca Sport:

          I purchased 3 different colors to make three lace scarves for gifts. I used size 7 needles on one for a lovely open lace pattern and smaller needles on another for a tighter weave both were beautiful and very soft to the skin. The yarn was easy to work with.

                          I used this yarn to weave a houndstooth scarf. It is soft and beautiful. Very reasonably priced for this quality.

                            I use this yarn for a FrogTree pullover sweater that I absolutely love!!
                            It's the Origami pullover. I tweak it a bit by making the pattern longer.
                            It's a classic!
