I made an oversized sweater to wear casually. Very warm. I used a seed (moss) stitch which worked great with the variegated yarn. Made each stitch really pop.
For me, the 30% acrylic content was too much. I could feel it on my fingers as I worked. May not bother others. I felt that if the acrylic and alpaca content were reversed the product would be perfect.
The composition, as it was, worked up beautifully and I would purchase Horizon again for another project.

        Planning to knit sweater with pattern for this yarn by Elite. So far have only knitted a swatch. Colors are identical to computer screen and pattern. Both stocking and garter stitches are beautiful before and after washing swatch. Retained shape. Will update when knitted.
