      Love making hats with this yarn. It only takes a few hours per hat. The children adore them because of the soft feel (absolutely no itch) and the brilliant colors.

        This looked a little more green-y on the website, its more multicoloured than I envisaged, but think I like it and will be interesting to see how it works up.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Super fast, speedy delivery at a great rate - the only problem with this is that it encourages me to order more :)

        Comments about Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Chunky:

        I first got this yarn when I was visiting home in Michigan. When I brought it back I started making a scarf and figured out that I needed more than I origionally thought. This is a beautiful soft yarn. Since it is from an animal it does shed a little and has a slight scratchy feeling against delicate skin similar to wool. But do not let that deter you! It is amazing and I plan to use it more!

          This yarn is pure heaven to work with and to wear. I made an infinity scarf in a figure 8 stitch which compliments the hand painted syle of this yarn perfectly. I get so many compliments, it's unbelievable!

          I have made a spiral patterned snood from this beautiful yarn. It is the softest yarn I have found. The snood is light as air but oh so warm. The change of colors allows the diagonal pattern to stand out. I have so many orders from my friends I'll be making this for the next 5 years!

            The Colors are so vivid and the yarn is so soft. The yarn does tend to shed while you work with it (and I have not had it very long so I do not know if it will continue to shed) Love the colors on this. The online pictures do not do this justice.

              Love, love, love Misti Alpaca yarn! It is so soft that it's hard going back to working with any other yarn. The color variations are beautiful and interesting.

                I used this yarn to knit a scarf with a diagonal pattern using short rows. The colors are very compatible with just about anything you would wear. Even though the yarn is labeled chunky it knits up with a fairly smooth texture. The yarn is very soft, pliable and comfortable to work with
