    I used this for baby's and children because it

    stitches given.

    I ordered from "WEB Yarns". The person helping

        Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Skinny Dyed:

        I am knitting a beautiful, stylish medallion cardi as seen in VK Spring/Summer 2009. The pattern is highly textured so one wants the yarn to hold its properties throughout the knitting process. This yarn exceeds all expectations, is so incredibly light weight, and the color is spectacular. I cannot say enough about ALL the Blue Sky yarns I have purchased. Truly top quality and I will be back for more.

            great colors

            By Anonymous

            from Detroit, MI

            Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Skinny Dyed:

            I've knit this up, washed and worn it, and unraveled it, and it's knitting up almost just like new. It's a beautiful, beautiful yarn; I'm surprised it hasn't been reviewed yet. The pictures don't quite do the colors justice: the red in particular is a gorgeous, deep, *slightly* bluish red, very hard to find. Hard to believe they are made with low-impact dyes. This yarn *is* a little splitty, with all the plies (that make it a nice round yarn). I've been knitting it up this time with WEBS bamboo interchangeables, and their slightly dull tips work very well with avoiding snags on yarn like this.
