    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.

          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.

              Much finer than expected, I misread the discription and actually needed the next weight up. I can use this for something but will have to buy more yarn to make the original project.
