      I wanted Jade Sapphire cashmere or cashmere silk it was but out of my price range. I've seen many wonderful alpaca silk laces but the colors from this Malabrigo line have the most beautiful variations that look as classy to me as the Jade Sapphire cashmere. I will buy again.

      The yarn has a nice feel, but color 'carrot' should have been named 'dark carrot' I found using sz 1 needles made scarf too small. Starting over with larger needles. Using the herringbone pattern; I like the border but guess a heavier wgt. yarn would work up better.

        Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

        I am currently knitting up a scarf (cowl) with this yarn. It knits up well, no splaying of the yarn, no fuzzing. The colour is true to the picture on the Malabrigo site. Very soft with a nice shimmer.

          Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

          The yarn was absolutely gorgeous, and so incredibly soft. (I shamelessly pet it occasionally!) I can't wait to make a shawl out of the skeins I bought.
          My only issue was that it wasn't true to color. That's just the nature of products with dye lots; I just happened to get a VERY, VERY GREEN dye lot, with hardly a hint of blue. While I do love the color, it isn't what I was expecting.

          Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

          I bought 853 Abril - just gorgeous amethyst shade ! I am making crocheted shawl for my sister and I could not be happier with shine and drape that it is already showing in my work : ). This is the first time I am using this yarn and I was somewhat surprised with it's tendency to split, I guess that part is due to silk content. I am using very small hook size (2.00 mm), and that might be also contributing to finicky behavior of this yarn. However, all of the effort will pay off at the end, so I do not mind that this project will take somewhat longer time to finish.

                  Comments about Malabrigo Baby Silkpaca Lace:

                  I am going to knit a lacy torque for a breast cancer survivor. She has lost her hair to chemo.

                  Please, ALL KNITTERS:
                  Donate scarves and hats to your local breast cancer treatment center. Or give your own loved one fighting breast cancer.
                  Both my sister and daughter have survived breast cancer in the past few years. They are survivors. But my dughter was in a coma for FOUR HOURS post op. My sister needed second surgery.

                  Get a mammogram, too.

                  Also, remember that 20% of breast cancer victims are men.

                  Thank you. Esther of Kent

                      I chose three colors on the computer to flow together. They work well and using 3 stands flow seamlessly from one to the next.

                      Great service! When I needed addition yarn I received it within about a week of order. And even the backorded portion arrived much soon than I expected it

                            I love this yarn which I use for knitting scarves. So far I haven't had any complaints about them, and the price is good. It is a pity that the colors generally are a lot darker than the samples shown on the site, but I will probably keep on using them.

                                I started knitting a shawl with this yarn the day I got it. It's coming along very nicely. The yarn is so soft, I can't wait until the shawl is done so I can wear it. I highly suggest this yarn for any lace needs.

                                Service and delivery comments:

                                The yarn arrived in perfect condition, it just took a little while to get to me. It may have been because we got some nasty weather that week, but for some reason it was stuck at the USPS sort facility in Springfield for quite a few days. In the end it got to me just fine.
