          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.

            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.
