      Having loved the color pathways, I just bought four more skeins today, from Webs. The alpaca is a lovely, remarkable animal, able to survive at high altitudes that most animals cannot survive.
      (There are two type of Alpaca producing various yarn types). I like the fact that this product is light weight; very warm, and gorgeous color pathways. I made a sweater out of some Alpaca products, and love everything about it!
      Also, this is a strong yarn... who could ask for more??

      I bought this yarn to specifically make socks with it. The color I chose was Monte Carlo. Maybe it was the color choice that threw me off, but what I noticed as I was knitting with this was that the yarn gets VERY fuzzy, and when you have to frog your work a bit, it snags. There are positives to this yarn, being that it is very soft and the colors are wonderful. Just wish I had made something other than socks with the color I chose!

              Just finished EZ Baby surprise jacket for new born, plus hat and booties, all from one skein with left-overs. Wow. Should be washable (I have not tried yet) Washable sock yarn makes great baby clothes. Washable and it frees you from tepid pastel prison.

                I knitted a pair of mittens, a hat and a scarf with the yarn in the past and they all were wonderful - light but warm. I loved it so much that I had to buy more.

                  Comments about Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock:

                  Completely useless for making anything other than socks, due to the incredibly SHORT repeats. We're talking 4-5 inches, here. Looks terrible and muddy in a shawl.

                    I bought this to make holiday gifts for family, and couldn't be more delighted with the colors in this skein. My kids like really soft and comfy socks, and this yarn delivers! It has been a pleasure to knit with it, as it feels so nice in the hand. I would definitely buy it again to try different colors.

                    The yarn is very forgiving, and my mistakes were easy to see and repair. The self-striping design makes a great fashion scarf,as does the width of the finished product.
