      I used this yarn for knitting a headband that had a leaf pattern. This yarn was perfect! The leafs stand out in the pattern but the headband is still soft and stretchy.

      I am working on a top down tee. The yarn feels good, but I am having trouble keeping a consistent gauge. I keep moving up a one needle size since I started the knitting, even though I did made a good swatch before I started. I am not sure this would work for cables, since I am not seeing much definition. Since it is a chainette, it is a good idea to knot the tip of the working strand so it does not ravel with handling.. I think it will be very soft and comfortable to wear. I think this yarn might make great camisoles for wear under winter weight garments also.

      Service and delivery comments:

      As always shipping was fast and service was wonderful. I appreciate it when the packaging is waterproof since sometimes the package is outside for 6-8 hours before I can get it.

            Very soft, like the definition. Making a summer top. Splits easily and unravels quickly if you don't knot the ends

                        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.

                                          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!
