I am making my 20 year old daughter a 'blankie'. This fiber far exceeds cashmere in softness. The drape is beautiful, and has a soft, baby light feel to it. It holds the pattern well. I had never worked with this fiber before, and would recommend it again and again. I am all ready thinking what I can make next with this fiber. I have attached a picture of a strip of the blankie...

    Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Melange:

    For my first grand-daughter, I was trying to find a yarn to match the "binkie" my own daughter had received, 40 years ago. This yarn came the closest. I used a double crochet throughout to give a simple, yet elegant texture with fringe.
    It is so very soft & luxurious. I love it and will use it again.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I love ordering from this site! The prices can't be beat. However, I have found that it always takes them a few days to prepare my order and shipping also takes quite a bit. Pretty disappointing to have to wait up to 12 days for my yarn to arrive when knitpicks ships so much quicker.

        Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Melange:

        I have used this to crochet several stuffed animal toys using and varying the patterns in "Edward's Menagerie" also purchased on line from Webs. The slight color variations in the yarn and the softness are perfect for this. The yarn, being Alpaca is a bit pricey for large garments, but would make beautiful scarves as well.

            I used this yarn as part of a multi-colored modular sweater. The color is clear and bright; the texture is as soft as down. I want more! I would absolutely consider this product for future projects.

                  Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Melange:

                  I bought this to knit a hat and then felt. It is so soft on the hands while knitting. The pattern called for 2 strands of yarn - one sport and one fingering weight. I used this yarn and Merino wool yarn. The pattern knitted quickly and with little trouble. When felted, the final product was as thick as I expected but didn't hold the form as well as I thought. It's a little too floppy. When I do this again, I'll use 2 yarns of sport weight to give a little more structure. Would buy this yarn again in a heartbeat. Love it!

                    Crocheted an infinity scarf and the result was soft and luxurious. The yarn was easy to work with and gave great stitch definition even with a heavy halo. Each skein seemed a bit uneven as to the tightens of the strand. Some thick, some were thinner. It made keeping an even gauge difficult. This would change between skeins and Was uneven within the same skein. I had to keep the tension very tight to get a good result. But it was totally worth it because the end result was a gorgeous scarf that felt good around my neck. Not at all scratchy! Love it!

                      I love color work but I also love cables and this is perfect for both, It works well with other alpaca and alpaca blend yarns and the colors are really well done, subtle yet vibrant heathers. feels like a soft kitten while knitting and has a lovely drape and feel after knitting.
