Have swatched various stitch patterns at this time and the yarn has proven fairly easy to manage for a lace wright. I have also dbl-stranded and done a swatch and LOVE the weight of the fabric it made and the way the color worked up. I personally don't have any quibble with this yarn. Having said that, if you have not used lace yarn yet I would suggest using a 100% wool for your first go at it. This yarn is smoother and slicker than 100% wool and might prove daunting to a newcomer to lace work.

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint Discontinued Colors:

        This yarn really is fabulous and able to be utilized in various ways. I've used it on 3 different projects...a wrap-wore it yesterday around my neck, a cardigan combined with a mohair silk yarn and finally a shawl. Though lace weight, it makes an amazingly warm shawl, kept me toasty while knitting on an extended international trip.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Live in the middle of nowhere and so appreciate the timely service Webs provides. Had a recent issue of wrong color and customer service dealt with promptly and professionally. Thank you Webs for being a great company to do trade with.

            Wonderful yarn with great colors. This soft yarn makes beautiful lace with great definition, and the resulting drape is very nice. I've used this for shawls and scarves with great success!

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint Discontinued Colors:

            I purchased this to make a scarf for a friend's daughter. Five inches into it I bought her something else - I couldn't bear to let it out of my hands!

            The yarn is a bit slippery, but wood needles will help with that. The colour-changes are short, which makes for a bright, cheerful end result.

            Blocks beautifully and has fabulous drape. I'm sorry the colour I chose is being discontinued, but the new colours coming in are equally as irresistible.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Quick and efficient as always. The package arrived before the confirmation of delivery did.
