I love the colors available. I love the feel of the yarn, the speed of the chunky and the way the finished projects look. I have purchased upwards of 25 skeins of this yarn in different colors -- some with the thread of sparkle. I have made at least 10 pairs of fingerless mitts with it and now have 11 skeins of purple ready to go into a sweater for myself -- I am going to be using a Plymouth pattern for this long length cardigan sweater!

Loved this color, made a cowl, every time I got up from knitting I was covered in fuzz, going have to be careful what I wear this cowl with.

          This yarn is a pleasure to work with and I have used many colors to make a number of afghans as gifts for friends. The beauty of the yarn means you can use a simple pattern and finish your project promptly - always a plus for me!

            I made a sweater and hat for myself in the Grey Alpaca Grande. Beautiful stitch definition. Slightly fuzzy, a little heavy (after all it is a bulky) , but sooooo soft and warm. Quick to knit. Looks beautiful!

              Comments about Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande:

              I have now made two afghans/throws with this yarn and will make more. It knits up quickly, doesn't separate and feels wonderful to the touch to work with. Only thing not so great is that it sheds on your clothes as you work. But after washing no longer sheds.

                Comments about Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande:

                I sell a lot of winter beanies, and this is my staple yarn for that use. It is bulky enough that I can use a single strand with an L, M, or N hook, and I get one hat to about 2/3 to 3/4 of a ball of yarn. As you all know, people just HAVE to touch textiles. I let them finger the items closest to the door for a few moments, then direct them to a large shawl that is 50% Merino and 50% silk. The OOhs and Ahhs! Then, before that texture can grow too familiar, I put a hat made from the Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande in their hand. It results in a sale as often as not. Great yarn, good color choices.

                  This Baby Alpaca Grande was made into a gorgeous infinity scarf. I made two and plan to make another. They are beautiful, soft to the touch and will be very warm in the winter months!

                      Gorgeous yarn, beautiful heft to it, and as soft as aything I've ever worked with. This is to make an afghan for a wedding present, and I couldn't be more delighted with it!

                      Service and delivery comments:

                      Customer service really went above & beyond. Seeing that I was ordering 28 skeins, they realized that the mixed dye lots they had in stock would likely make for an uneven-looking large prroject. They special ordered a large dye lot for me, so my project would look as beautiful as I imagined. FANTASTIC CUSTOMER SERVICE. Can't say enough good about these folks.
