This has become my "go to" yarn. I've used it for everything from fair isle mittens, to hats, scarves, and sweaters. It is beautifully soft, with a lovely halo. The weight is more like a DK than worsted and seems to work best for me when using size 4.5mm needles. Currently working on a cardigan for me and I'm loving it. It's not just about the finished garment, but the joy of knitting each stitch.

Sheds really badly

Yes, it feels beautifully soft and it crochets up very nicely but the fo ends up looking like you spend your free time volunteering at the dog shelter.

I made gloves...Read complete review

Yes, it feels beautifully soft and it crochets up very nicely but the fo ends up looking like you spend your free time volunteering at the dog shelter.

I made gloves with this and for real, they look like I've been petting a heavily shedding cat. The more I wear them, the worse it gets.

I wouldn't buy it again. It's too bad when you really love the look and feel of a yarn only to have your fo look ratty at the end.

            Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

            I adore this yarn, and have used it in all weights. It is a good value for a very luxurious yarn. The colors have complexity and there is a great selection of current shades.
            It is smooth on the needles, and I love the process of knitting with it as well as the resulting garment. I look forward to how it gets even more beautiful when it is soaked and blocked! The colors are to die for ( no pun Intended!)
            I highly recommend it for sweaters and scarves and gloves.

              I purchased a sweater quantity of this to make my husband's christmas sweater. It is one of my favorite yarns to work with and the garments hold up well. He loves his sweater and I think will want more made with ultra alpaca. Recently I also made a hat for my son out of the leftovers and a pair of mittens for a teacher. All were received well!

                  Anticipated softness was the reason for purchasing this 50/50 wool, alpaca yarn. It is a lovely yarn but I was disappointed that it did not feel softer. If I didn't know the fiber content I would think it was a nice wool worsted. Next time I'll purchase 100% alpaca.

                    Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

                    This is my go-to yarn for anything requiring worsted weight. The colors are always rich and beautiful, and the resulting fabric is always strong but soft with a nice halo of alpaca fiber. Also each skein has a generous amount of yarn, and they go a long way.

                        I knitted a shawlette for the first time and do NOT use circular needles. Was amazed that this wool was so forgiving of being crunched on 14" straight needles. Very relieved, too.
