        I wanted Jade Sapphire cashmere or cashmere silk it was but out of my price range. I've seen many wonderful alpaca silk laces but the colors from this Malabrigo line have the most beautiful variations that look as classy to me as the Jade Sapphire cashmere. I will buy again.

        The yarn has a nice feel, but color 'carrot' should have been named 'dark carrot' I found using sz 1 needles made scarf too small. Starting over with larger needles. Using the herringbone pattern; I like the border but guess a heavier wgt. yarn would work up better.

          I chose three colors on the computer to flow together. They work well and using 3 stands flow seamlessly from one to the next.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Great service! When I needed addition yarn I received it within about a week of order. And even the backorded portion arrived much soon than I expected it

                I love this yarn which I use for knitting scarves. So far I haven't had any complaints about them, and the price is good. It is a pity that the colors generally are a lot darker than the samples shown on the site, but I will probably keep on using them.

                  the color is even better in person then on the sight and it is wonderful for the shall I am doing. it has lots of yardage for the price, so it is a good value.

                    Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

                    I started knitting a shawl with this yarn the day I got it. It's coming along very nicely. The yarn is so soft, I can't wait until the shawl is done so I can wear it. I highly suggest this yarn for any lace needs.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    The yarn arrived in perfect condition, it just took a little while to get to me. It may have been because we got some nasty weather that week, but for some reason it was stuck at the USPS sort facility in Springfield for quite a few days. In the end it got to me just fine.

                                Nice product. Feels very soft. I had trouble with the pattern I used with this yarn. Even after several froggings, it was still in good shape, hardly any of the snarls that you often get with fuzzy yarn.

                                      This is a really lovely lace weight yarn. I have worked with it before and it is a pleasure. The Polar Morn colorway is new to me and a very beautiful light glacier blue.

                                                  Very soft, beautiful colors. I am crocheting a sweater and on the hook, the yarn is easy to work with. But I can not get over how easily this stuff tangles! Every hank I spin on my yarn baller has been a trial. It is slow going.
