I used over 1600 yards of this yarn to make a shawl. It was a pleasure to knit for the entirety of the project. The colorways all work together and the finished result was soft and smooth. I think this yarn would be fantastic for a number of different projects.

Soft and knits smaller

      I bought this yarn for a scarf project but am going to purchase more for a sweater. The consistency and weight are perfect for a sweater; warm but not bulky.

                            Always great to deal with Webs- living in Canada and ordering is NEVER an issue. Although I haven't knit with this yarn yet it is very soft. I can tell that it will have a really nice drape to it. The only issue with it is that it is definitely more like a fingering/lace weight. It isn't even close to aport weight. The yarn is way too fine to be sport. That being said I am looking forward to knitting with it. You can tell that it was created with decent Alpaca-not cheap stuff!

                            Absolutely perfect. This may have been a coincidence, but I even received the same dye lot as my previous purchase when I purchased the singleton!
                            Fast and accurate.

                                  Check your joins. I had some issues with the magic knot not holding. The texture of the yarn is quite soft and too smooth to "get a grip" on itself.

                                  Wished it had been put in plastic bag before putting into the mailer. When I opened it i cut through eight strands of the skein because they were right at the edge of the opening. It was my fault for using scissors.
