One of my favorite yarns of all time. The yarn strikes a wonderful balance between being soft (definitely next-to-skin soft for me and most folks that are not wool-phobes) and wearing incredibly well. I made a cute striped cardigan with this yarn, and have worn it regularly (several times a week, at least) for over a year. There is nary a pill in sight, which is amazing to me. And, remembering back to when I was knitting with it, the yarn is wonderfully easy and pleasant to work with. Nice and smooth through the fingers with just a touch of halo from the alpaca fibers. I am extremely pleased with the yarn, both for the soothing knitting experience and the excellent finished product. Now... if only they would come out with more colors. Please?

I knitted a scarf for my boyfriend with this yarn. I've never purchased this yarn before, so based on other reviews, I expected the yarn to be very soft. Alpaca is typically very soft, warm yarn. However, it was not all that soft, pretty scratchy actually. And in one of the skeins, there were 5 felted joins!! I guess I need to remember, you get what you pay for.

      Nice yarn. Wanted something that would be warm for a sweater for my 90 year old mom. It would be perfect if it worked up a little softer.

        This yarn is a nice weight and feels soft. Knitting a long summer cardigan. Yarn splits easily but is easily corretable. Does not have much stretch.

            I made two holiday sweaters for my grandsons. The yarn is warm and soft while being machine washable. The bulky weight worked up quickly and showed the cable stitch definition very well. I usually work only in natural fibres, but I'm very impressed with this blend.

              Comments about Valley Yarns Stockbridge:

              I love this yarn. I am very sensitive to the itch factor of wool and although this has alpaca mixed in I find it a little itchy for items worn next to the skin, especially on the face/neck. It is wonderful to work with and the finished garments have good stitch definition.
