The colors are vivid, the yarn is smooth and knot-free (after 16 skeins, that's pretty good!)and it is lovely on the hands. I will be very sad when it is all gone.

    Comments about SMC Alpaka:

    I use this yarn to knit newborn photography props, specifically a cabled beanie/hat. It has sold like crazy. The vintage gold color is gorgeous and has been well received by photographers. The yarn is so soft and I love to knit with it.

    Nice yarn

    By CAROLINA GIRL

    from RALEIGH, NC

    Comments about SMC Alpaka:

    Purchased the natural color. Swatched as shown on US6. Also swatched on US5 at 23 sts and 28 rows. It is soft and warm and should do nicely for hats, shawls, cowls, and the like.
