          Comments about Misti Alpaca Hand Paint Sock Discontinued Colors:

          I'm working on a crocheted chemo cap with this yarn and hoping that it's going to lay properly when it's finished without being too much of a "quitter". The swatch (I actually swatched!) is very soft and has beautiful drape, which is why I suggest it for scarves. I don't know how to knit socks, so I can't say for sure, but it seems like it would be too loose for a crocheted sock - not enough bounce-back.

          The colors are lovely and the only trouble I had was trying to frog a small piece I had started that wasn't working correctly - the fine fibers knotted up in the tighter stitches that were crocheted in the round. I had to end up cutting off a small, two-round chunk that I couldn't salvage. It wound nicely on a yarn-ball winder (without a swift).

          I've made a hat and three scarves with different color ways of this yarn--all are soft and beautiful! Thanks to the Web's sale, this hand dyed yarn is also affordable. A note to other buyers: do a swatch and see if the color stays. I had a darker blue color in this yarn that bled on my fingers and needles, but a good soak solved that problem. Lovely yarn!

                  I have not started a project with this yarn yet so don't know how it will knit. It is beautiful yarn, wonderful color. Feels great on my hands, I'm sure it will make feets feel good too.

                    I will use it for crocheting various hats, fingerless gloves, scarves, Mobius, and accessories. It not only is a very warm yarn, but it is also light weight and makes beautiful patterns. I really like to make a pattern with cables with this yarn.

                        This yarn is quite wonderful. It is very soft, knits quickly, and keeps its shape no matter how many unravelings I had to do. The color varigation is very nice, as well. It is mostly blue and tan, with dark denim, lighter denim, tan, gray and some lavender. The texture has a few stray fuzzes, but that is what alpaca yarn will do.
