Not a Good Warp Yarn

The colors and finished shawl and scarf were gorgeous, but a lot of blood, sweat and tears with snapping warps, especially the gray.

        Comments about Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk:

        I have not had a chance to weave with this yet, but I am very excited to. I ordered it in January to make a scarf for my husband for Valentine's Day. The last skien in my order was backordered, and arrived near the end of June! So, I have not had a chance to use it yet, as I am in the middle of another project. It looks great though, it is just what I was looking for.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I just want to be sure people understand, when something is backordered, it can take a very long time to arrive! This took about 6 months to arrive. After a few months I emailed inquiring and Webs gave me the date of when they expected delivery, which was still a few months out! Luckily, I didn't need it right away for a client.

                I purchased this lace weight fiber for a shawl and was very happy to find it is exactly as advertised. I even plan to use it for gloves (double strand). The color is even and works up beautifully. I am very happy with this product.
