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.

            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.

                Comments about Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk:

                2/14 alpaca silk worked well as warp. It was recommentded to use 18-20 dent for warp using this product and this worked well. 18 dent could have been used for a better drape.

                Service and delivery comments:

                delivery of product was a little slower than mentioned, although it was all within reason.
