        Wonderful yarn to knit with

        The chained ply gives it a very light weight,not heavy like most cotton yarns. So easy to knit and drapes well.

        purchase of Berroco Maya from Webs

            Comments about Berroco Maya:

            I was glad to find the skein I needed to complete a project - the retailer was one short. However, any online purchase is my last resort. Having worked in a yarn shop for 21 years before moving to a small community without a local shop, it is difficult for me to justify shopping online when I know the valuable service a yarn shop provides, and how difficult it is to maintain a small business. Also, can't duplicate dye lots online.

                          This yarn was very easy to work with when I made a summer top. I liked the fact it was lightweight, but sturdy. I'm not a big fan of chainette construction, but I had no difficulty working with this.

                              This yarn is very beautiful and I will use it again and again.
                              I usually don't like cotton but this is not like cotton although it is. I didn't think there was enough alpaca in it to really make a difference but I was wrong. It doesn't hurt my hands to knit with it and it isn't splitty at all. I don't have anything to say about this yarn that isn't good!

                                    I bought a hank of this to make a knitted cowl. It works up beautifully. Soft and drapey. I bought more to knit a shawl with.
