I love the colors available. I love the feel of the yarn, the speed of the chunky and the way the finished projects look. I have purchased upwards of 25 skeins of this yarn in different colors -- some with the thread of sparkle. I have made at least 10 pairs of fingerless mitts with it and now have 11 skeins of purple ready to go into a sweater for myself -- I am going to be using a Plymouth pattern for this long length cardigan sweater!

Loved this color, made a cowl, every time I got up from knitting I was covered in fuzz, going have to be careful what I wear this cowl with.

        This product was recommended to me at a knit shop for a cable scarf pattern. I have now made three in three different colors that my future daughter in laws picked out on line (natural, gray and grayish purple)for their birthday gifts. For Christmas I surprised them all with matching headbands. I am new to knitting and really found this easy to work with, so soft and beautiful results!

              I crocheted a cowl, and then crocheted and felted a hat with Baby Alpaca Grande by Plymouth Yarn. This yarn is so soft and "buttery' feeling. It felted with very quickly with excellent results. I will purchase this again!

                        I made a sweater and hat for myself in the Grey Alpaca Grande. Beautiful stitch definition. Slightly fuzzy, a little heavy (after all it is a bulky) , but sooooo soft and warm. Quick to knit. Looks beautiful!
