        Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Discontinued Colors:

        I am knitting my first project in many years. I love the feel of this yarn. The fine Alpaca fuzzies are new to me. I hope they don't tickle my nose when I wear this Shrug. I haven't finished this, so I don't know about washing it, however the swatch washed and was right on the gauge. Love the color green #6262

        I'm only on the first skein of use, but I'm really enjoying the Alpaca. It has a softness with the Alpaca in it, and the color is saturated and gorgeous.

          Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Discontinued Colors:

          I just love working with this product,love the feel of this yarn, softness, etc. If I wished for anything, I would probably like just a bit more alpaca in the blend, e.g., 40%wool 60% alpaca. As for service, it's outstanding, usually faster than FedEx.

            Wonderful yarn. Only complaint was the color, which was a bit drab - I ordered Forest Floor. I'll probably order a more vibrant color when it comes available for under $6.

                I love working on this yarn. It has a wonderful hand. I haven't found knots, etc. have made lots of hats, scarves, and a beautiful warm throw for winter reading in a big chair. Am going to make a sweater for a friend next.

                  Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Discontinued Colors:

                  I am knitting my first Knitscene pattern with this glorious wool (knitscene Winter/Dec 2012 - sweater #20 - Minnette Pullover by Cassie Castillo). I am just finishing the bottom band of this knit-all-in-one-piece-masterpiece-sweater and I am beyond thrilled. The yarn is luxurious, the colour (fuchsia) is saturated and even. The yardage - at this price - is incredibly good and very inexpensive for the quality. The hanks wound easily into balls and joins are minimal. I cannot say enough great things about this yarn and will be knitting MANY more projects with it. Berroco quality makes them the top US yarn maker in my opinion.
