      The color I ordered is called Verdigris- looked like bluish-teal, it's actually a dusty emerald, very green. Very nicely plied, not a single knot or join in any of the three skeins. Can't wait to use it! Only thing that kept me from giving 5 stars is the weight; it's not really quite worsted weight, closer to DK.

      Lovely soft silky yarn with real strength so knits up hard wearing and tough. Great stitch definition. This is such a great yarn I am going to try to save it by over-dying it a decent rich brown. I looked at the color picture on five different machines before I ordered TWO FULL BAGS of this yarn and I was bitterly disappointed when it arrived and glowed a baleful sickly greenish brown in the light. It is nothing like the photo on the web site. They should take it down or add a warning. I would not recommend this color to a friend but would recommend the yarn base.

          I purchased this yarn in a spiced pumpkin color that was on sale, and it is so beautiful. I am thankful that I bought so much of it as I cannot wait to make a lovely sweater for next fall.

            I made a lace scarf with this yarn. I worked up quickly, the yarn sheds very little and is soft and warm as can be! I loved this yarn so much I ordered more! My only wish is that it came in more colors.

              I knitted a scarf with the pumpkin color and from the start loved the feel of this yarn- so soft against the skin and how it handled. It gives great stitch definition and knits quickly. It does shed just a bit but I would expect that. I love this yarn so much that I ordered more!

                I bought this yarn because I liked the color and it was on sale. It arrived the same day as a knitting magazine with a pattern perfect for the yarn, but I did not have enough yardage. I e-mailed Webs for more, and they were careful to match the dye lot.

                This is the softest and most cuddly yarn I have ever used! I don't care if I never finish the sweater; it is so pleasing just to handle the yarn! It is light in weight and being alpaca will be very warm. I am using a size 7 addi turbo needle, but the yarn could take a smaller or larger size needle. The yarn has a slight haze to it. My patterning stitches stand out. Because it is so soft, I don't think it would be good for socks or other heavy wear garments.

                  I am knitting up the Lempster sweater by Norah Gaughan (Knitty Winter 2013) with this and it is coming along well. The yarn is soft and luscious and warm. The only quibble I have is that this is a boatneck sweater and where the sweater touches by collarbone area it does feel just the tiniest bit scratchy/itchy.

                  Since this yarn is very soft, it is best to use with making things that need to drape.

                        I was afraid the color, which was "Lichen," would be ugly after reading another review, but although it didn't look a lot like the picture, it was BETTER, a lovely green flecked with brown. I love it.
