    Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

    I used this yarn to knit the Adrienne Vittadini, Asymmetrial Cardigan from the Fall 2004 catalog. The yarn knit up perfectly according to the gauge required. The yarn is a little stiff or coarse so works well for this garment which will be worn over a camisole or blouse. I also ordered the Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light to complete the Dolman Sleeve Pullover from the same catalog. I hope that yarn is softer

      I just discovered Berroco yarns and I knit a sweater and two hats over the winter olympics in an old Elspeth Lavgold pattern and it came out great! Wonderful texture, wonderful hang. The colors are beautiful.

                  This is a really beautiful yarn with multiple, but subtle colors. The Blueberry mix shows up as a deep teal with eggplant threads mixed in. The Admiral shows up more as a deep purple.

                      Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

                      This is a wonderful yarn to work with and I have knitted several pairs of gloves, and hats with it. I often double up this yarn with another brand, or itself to give even more warmth to an item.

                      It is a good knitting yarn, the heathered appearance helps to hide errors should there be any.

                      When using it alone, a single strand, I find that the stitch definition changes a bit from sitting to sitting.
