        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint:

        I'm using this to make my first Niebling!!! So excited. The yarn is lovely, so soft and with a slight halo - I think this will be an airy shawl that still holds some warmth. It's a little splitty if I'm not careful with the points on my size 1 Addi turbos, but not that hard to navigate; I'm managing centered double decreases without an issue.

          I made a scarf with this, I paired it with a sock yarn and it is beautiful. I gifted it and forgot to take a picture.

            Bought this yarn for weaving but couldn't wait and started knitting. If you are addicted to lace yarns (I certainly am), you will love this yarn. Slightly slippery to knit, thus the recommendation for bamboo needles. Knits up to make gorgeous fabric!!

              This is a beautiful yarn that knits up easily. You may want to make a tiny swatch to wash to test the colorfastness; I had some bleeding with one of the red colors.

                This is gorgeous yarn and I have used it now for three projects. The red colorway bleeds color quite badly, the other colors I purchased are very pastel and don't run noticeably.

                  Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint:

                  I have used this yarn in several projects (hats, scarves, a sweater vest, others). Normally I use it together with another yarn (or even 2 other lace weight yarns) to emphasize a color in a varigated yarn or add dimension to a solid color yarn, but I have used a single strand of this yarn to make stripes alternated with stripes of a kid mohair/silk blend lace-weight to make a lightly felted shawl - so elegant and beautiful. This yarn is a joy to work with, very soft and warm with no itch, but is too fine for most projects, so works best as a carry along strand. I've never had a problem with knots or thin spots or any of the issues that are sometimes a problem. It is a very high quality yarn, and worth the price.
