    I love this yarn! I knit a striped hooded cardigan and it was hard to decide if I was going to wear it or frame it and hang it on the wall!!! Perfectly said that it behaves more like wool when knitting! As for pilling, if something is lovely soft, that can be a tradeoff that you need only prepare for! Colors are true to the core and throughout the skein and the dye lots. Cannot say enough positive about this yarn!

    Disappointed

    I made a sweater with this yarn, while it was beautiful to work with, it pilled so badly with a couple of washings. Very disapointed

        I make lovely and appreciated baby blankets. If the parent decides to machine wash it may shrink a bit but I have never had any complaints and new parents seem to love it and use it.

            Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton:

            I love everything about this yarn- the texture, which is wonderfully soft for a cotton yarn, the weight, the color palette, they're all perfect. I have been using it to knit blankets and it works up beautifully. To me, it seems to be a bit heavier worsted weight yarn.

            Service and delivery comments:

            WEBS service was, as always, exceptional. I needed to order more yarn for a blanket that was in-progress, and asked that they match lot #s to the lots that I already had, and they did so. Delivery was prompt.

                    It's soft and a pleasure to knit, even in summer. To my knowledge, it isn't machine-washable, which is unfortunate for a baby project

                          I than went back to knit a second blanket with the same yarn. Extremely soft and pleasant to the touch.

                            I am using this yarn to knit a baby blanket and it's turning out great. The colors are vibrant, and it's really soft. My one complaint is how hard it was to roll into balls when I received. Thank god my mom was here to help, but even so we struggled. Other than that, I think it's a great yarn.

                              Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton:

                              I'm crocheting an afghan, following the pattern on the cover of Molly Makes Crochet. That pattern calls for much smaller cotton and a size B hook. I'm using size H with the cotton worsted. Combining the colors in the inner circles is such fun! I bought most of the colors from a local yarn shop but didn't like the shade of white they had in stock. I ordered a skein of "bone", liked it, and ordered enough for the project.
