      Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Melange:

      Crocheted an infinity scarf and the result was soft and luxurious. The yarn was easy to work with and gave great stitch definition even with a heavy halo. Each skein seemed a bit uneven as to the tightens of the strand. Some thick, some were thinner. It made keeping an even gauge difficult. This would change between skeins and Was uneven within the same skein. I had to keep the tension very tight to get a good result. But it was totally worth it because the end result was a gorgeous scarf that felt good around my neck. Not at all scratchy! Love it!

        Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Melange:

        I love color work but I also love cables and this is perfect for both, It works well with other alpaca and alpaca blend yarns and the colors are really well done, subtle yet vibrant heathers. feels like a soft kitten while knitting and has a lovely drape and feel after knitting.

        Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Melange:

        I've used this yarn for hats and cowls. It is extremely soft. Not the yarn you want if you're looking for rigidity, but if soft and squishy is what you're looking for, this yarn is lovely. On a negative note: I used this yarn to line merino wool mittens and it stretched so much, I have to remake the linings. Beautiful colour selection.

          I used this yarn for felted patches on a cotton cardigan and then embroidered the patches. It looks beautiful. Pattern is from "Lovely Little Things to Knit & Crochet" by Mags Kandis.

                    I added this yarn to my "go to" list today when cleaning our the stash organizing all those swatches. The colors are gorgeous and the dye lots are really even between purchases. I knit it between 19/26 and 24/32 with great results on needles US size 3 - 7. The drape is beautiful, BUT, this yarn ha some "sproing" despite the alpaca content and excellent memory. It is as soft as cashmere. No itch whatsoever. Not good for summer knits even at the lower gauge b/c it knits a really warm garment that keeps off wind, damp and makes that wintry chill go completely away without wearing a really heavy garment. Excellent for scarves, mufflers and very fitted garments or vests b/c there is no "bulk" as well as drapey knits. Great for lace, bobbles and cables too. Pill factor is minimal. Decent yardage for the price and the quality. Pomegranate and Salsa are my favorite colors. The luminosity of the yarn does not show on the monitor.
