    One of my favorite yarns of all time. The yarn strikes a wonderful balance between being soft (definitely next-to-skin soft for me and most folks that are not wool-phobes) and wearing incredibly well. I made a cute striped cardigan with this yarn, and have worn it regularly (several times a week, at least) for over a year. There is nary a pill in sight, which is amazing to me. And, remembering back to when I was knitting with it, the yarn is wonderfully easy and pleasant to work with. Nice and smooth through the fingers with just a touch of halo from the alpaca fibers. I am extremely pleased with the yarn, both for the soothing knitting experience and the excellent finished product. Now... if only they would come out with more colors. Please?

    I knitted a scarf for my boyfriend with this yarn. I've never purchased this yarn before, so based on other reviews, I expected the yarn to be very soft. Alpaca is typically very soft, warm yarn. However, it was not all that soft, pretty scratchy actually. And in one of the skeins, there were 5 felted joins!! I guess I need to remember, you get what you pay for.

    Comments about Valley Yarns Stockbridge:

    I love this yarn. I am very sensitive to the itch factor of wool and although this has alpaca mixed in I find it a little itchy for items worn next to the skin, especially on the face/neck. It is wonderful to work with and the finished garments have good stitch definition.

        I'm using this to knit a sweater for my mother. It's a good yarn, even color and weight. Soft. A bit splitty if it gets untwisted, but nothing too major.

            I love the combination of mediums. It is soft and there is a lovely surprise when you begin knitting because of the llama. The fine threads in a very lite way are present. I've made hats and now making an amazing poncho. True to size 7 needles. Enjoy and please keep this yarn in stock. The colors are glorious.

                      I'm always on the lookout for yarns with alpaca, but yarns that are wool/alpaca aren't always as soft as I hope they'll be. Stockbridge was a pleasant surprise. It's a very light and airy spin, more than fair amount of stretch (don't make anything that needs to hold shape!), and even size.

                      Cardigan, here I come!

                          I am knitting a sweater in garter stitch and it just looks beautiful. The yarn glides over the needles so well. Great selection of colors, too.
