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.

        Very nice yarn to work with. Tight twist shows off cables beautifully. Very even texture and weight. Not as soft as other 50/50 wool alpaca blends that I have used, feels more wool-like.

        This yarn is described perfectly - it is a size 7 needle if you are a loose or tight knitter. The colors are breathtaking. Love love love this yarn, please don't discontinue. If you lace with it or straight k,p - it's beautiful.

              I made a slouchy hat for my daughter. She loves it! It worked up easily and the yarn is so soft. I would purchase it again.

                This tends to be my Go-To yarn for quality products I knit! I love the colorways, stitch definition and fiber composition. Also, the price can't be beat for the yardage!
