        Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

        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.

                      Was a great substitute to a much more expensive yarn which was recommended for the pattern I wanted to replicate.

                      Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

                      I'm about half way through a sweater and it's so much fun to use. Great stitch definition for all the complicated cables and I love the soft texture. I'm guessing it will shed a bit because of the fairly loose twist and it does split a little, but other than that it's perfect. Just bought more yesterday in the May Anniversary sale for 2 more Christmas gift sweaters!

                        This yarn is luscious, very soft, yet it appears to hold up well. It's a good all purpose worsted weight. I wouldn't hesitate to use it again.
