This was used in 3 different shawls of 1000+ yards. I never really had a problem with it other then it likes to grab on to other stitches as you rip out rows. I expected this though. I'm not sure where the other one star ratings came from. I've used this plenty of times and have never had a problem. Its very durable once knit up as long as you're not dragging it along a bed of nails. Its also extremely soft. There have been instances where I have gotten some plant fibers in the yarn but those were easy to pick out.

Alpaca fiber should be soft, buttery and delicious to knit with. This yarn has none of those properties. Its beautiful in the skein, but once you start to knit, its poor quality is evident. Likely made from low grade alpaca. Do yourself a favor and purchase a superfine baby alpaca yarn - you will have a much better knitting experience.

            Delivery was prompt, as usual.
            I used a similar color of Malabrigo together with the Alpaca (and #4 circular needle) to make a little heavier shawl.
            Love the results. Price and quality of both are very good.

                  I've used this yarn for several scarves including a lacy patterned one and was very happy with the results. With the great color selection, and lightweight softness, I will use again.

                              I purchased this yarn to knit a scarf for my step-mom figuring it would be a lovely yarn since it is alpaca. Boy was I wrong. This yarn is not soft at all, I am extremely disappointed.

                              I will not purchase this again.

                                  Alpaca fiber should be soft, buttery and delicious to knit with. This yarn has none of those properties. Its beautiful in the skein, but once you start to knit, its poor quality is evident. Likely made from low grade alpaca. Do yourself a favor and purchase a superfine baby alpaca yarn - you will have a much better knitting experience.
