        I made a wide and long cowl and this yarn. The cowl is super soft and drapes beautifully. It wraps twice and it isn't at all bulky. Perfect.

          Comments about Cascade Yarns Eco Alpaca:

          This is really a beautiful yarn. It's exquisitely soft and luxurious, knits up well, and is perfect for pretty much ANYthing. The only criticism I could give is that it sheds a bit if you have to rip back. But honestly, what animal fiber doesn't?

            I've tried this yarn in different colors and the black/gray color seems lighter in weight (thinner) than the solid brown. All colors seem a bit thinner than other yarns that are 110 yd per 50 gram.
            Still lovely and soft and I will buy again. Would like to see a solid black, too.

              This yarn is one of my favorites! It is unbelievably soft to work with and wear!!

              Service and delivery comments:

              Customer service did email me to tell me one of my yarn choices was not available. I emailed them straight away and was surprised how quickly they emailed back. I was able to add other yarn.
              Living through Hurricane Sandy, I was also very happy to see that WEBS donated a percentage of their sales to the American Red Cross.

                  Comments about Cascade Yarns Eco Alpaca:

                  This yarn is so pretty, soft, lightweight but quite warm, and very forgiving (read: I've ripped back probably 50 yards in one go without a snag). The colors are great for openwork patterns--subtle, but still add some dimension. I actually purchased this batch as a gift for a novice crocheter, because it's so easy to work with, but she isn't sure she can stop petting it long enough to crochet.

                      One of my go-to yarns when I'm trying to focus on softness over strength for a gift. Got quickly knit into a heavy cowl for my sister-in-law, and it works up the same that it always does - good in what I call the workhorse stitch patterns (ribbing, moss, light lace) and needing a little babying to keep from unraveling. Still the softest thing in the world, though, and always exactly what I need when I reach for it.
