While the colors are gorgeous and the yarn is soft, I found this yarn to be very difficult to work with as it has no stretch whatsoever. Perhaps part of the problem was I used too small a needle size, but I went with what gave me the correct gauge, which in retrospect was a huge mistake. But I was using a pattern that called for this yarn and I've never really had a problem with my gauge being off. I had to use so much pressure to knit with this yarn that my fingers and hands became sore - I totally understand the previous reviewer who said that she has two broken wrists. In the process of fighting with the yarn, it frequently split, especially on the crocheted border. Plus, one of the skeins had frayed yarn in two places. Finally, the manufacturer recommends dry cleaning!

      Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton:

      Blue Sky Alpaca organic cotton, worsted weight, is ideal for baby blankets. Soft, warm, colorful, they envelop a youngster from babyhood to pre-teen, or until the yarn wears through. The. One can easily repair them. "Comforting" is my pick for best adjective, for both knitter and recipient!

                    Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton:

                    I'm not usually a fan of cotton, but was making a chemo cap and because of that chose an undyed, organic cotton from Blue Sky Alpacas. Oh my heavens, it is delightful! So gloriously soft and easy to work with. The hat crocheted up in no time and is so lovely to look at and feel. I love the light texture the yarn gives. I have not tried to wash it yet, so I cannot speak about how this yarn launders. But I am hopeful, with proper care, it will remain as wonderful as it comes out of the hank. I would recommend anyone needing to work with cotton give this a try. You'll not be disappointed. My only wish is that they made it in more colors.

                      Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton:

                      Arrived very quickly and was easy to wind. With cotton, that can be hit or miss. I had to wind about 10 of these and not one hank had any tangles. Some of the hanks to have a few knots in them. I hate having knots in my knitting, they always work their way to the front, so I do have to look out for them in order to cut the yarn in time. The yarn is soft, but not very stretchy, true worsted weight and stitch definition is lovely.
