      Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

      The color (Berry) was pinker than I had hoped, but that's one of the downsides of ordering online. I'm knitting a child's sweater vest and the yarn, other than color, is great!

          Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

          I love this yarn, it's so soft. I ordered three and ended up returning one because it was more yellow than I cared for "Seedling Green," Dye lot 62187. Wish I could purchase it locally, but since I can't, this is a great way to get it.

            Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

            I really like the feel and handling of this yarn. I knit a jumper for my daughter who lives in Seattle. She chose the pattern and is thrilled with it so I am knitting another in green with a fleck of yellow that gives it a little light to the green. Although it is not machine washable I expect it will not be hard to launder by hand. I discovered a mistake and had to pull out about 4 inches. It came out smooth and was easy to pick up and go on.

                I've used this in Denim--my daughter's fav. First made beanies, then bracelets, then headband. She wants EVERYTHING in this color and yarn...fingerless mittens, leg warmers, vest, sweater (uh, sweater, not until I get better LOL). The color is truly beautiful and, for some reason, it looks even more vibrant in sunlight.
