I wove a shawl and an infinity wrap with this yarn, and was so happy with the results I am about to order more. I wove the first two items with the same yarn as weft, but then I sampled using 8/2 tencel weft and the shiny/matte contrast is gorgeous, so my next pieces will use a tencel weft. THanks to all the reviewers who helped me realize a sett of 24 would work just fine for the diamond twill I used.

The yarn was beautiful but completely inaccurate and a different, lighter tone than what is described in the picture. The yarn itself, other thasn color us as described. The problem with the color was not due to different screen colors.. it was the same on every screen I opened it on, including the customer service representative I called at WEBS... they literally got up and grabbed a few cones and confirmed all of them were much lighter than what was described in picture... (while they were pleasant about it, I still had to ask for them to do this.)
Again, the color was beautiful but not a true representation of the picture and what was described.
The yarn itself is amazing, just the wrong color.

        Comments about Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk:

        My first order was for 9 cones to weave up Christmas scarves. They were so beautiful, soft and luxurious, and for the three generations of recipients of the gifts, every single one across the lifestyle gaps-male and female, not only put them on right then and there, but caressed and petted them repeatedly! It wove up fantastic as lace and played nicely for pattern weave. I had fun designing these scarves for the many different tastes and styles, and I ordered 9 more cones to continue the fun! I love this stuff!

        I am using this for the Heliotaxis pattern by Renata Brenner. I purchased this during a recent sale and am quite please with the way it is working up. You must be careful to catch both strands especially with things like K3tog and PSSO.

                  This lace was recommended to me while working on a swap item. She wanted me to use this lace with gold sewing thread to crochet a lace wrap. This yarn is so beautiful; and the gold thread was a perfect addition. (I'm using the navy color lace). I love that this lace comes with so much yardage and that it comes on a cone; really easy to use. I'm using a 3.25mm hook. I will definitely be coming back to try some other colors for myself.
