    I made a scarf with the Purplelicious colorway. Even during the time I was knitting it I received tons of complements, and it knit easily with no splitting or joins. I'm looking forward to making garments out of more of this yarn. It's a dream to knit.

    It knit up beautifully. I knit a complex cable tunic; this had great stich definition. The soft tones in the colorway are exquisite and blend well.
    I have now worn it for three months - maybe weekly.
    Hand washed and reblocked very carefully (been knitting for 60 years.)It pills so badly it is now unwearable; the fuzz is covering the cables. I have used other alpaca blends, never had this great a problem.

        Scratchy

          I bought this to make a scarf. It has a lovely color and knits nicely but it's not as soft as the Blue Sky Worsted Hand Dyes which are only a couple dollars more.

              Gorgeous, soft yarn that knits up beautifully. The subtle color changes show beautiful depth without detracting from the stitch pattern. Color #33 birds is a deep, rich, gorgeous teal.

                    Comments about Misti Alpaca Tonos Worsted:

                    I bought this for a woven crochet piece about 35 x 70 inches. The crochet lattice worked up quickly, no splitting and only a couple of joins/flaws in 8 skeins. The weaving went easily as well, as this yarn did not twist and tend to knot while working with 7-8 foot lengths.

                    It produced a beautiful wrap, accented with a few strands of 3 other yarns of various types.

                    I would use this yarn again, and think it would be very nice used in practically any wearable project, especially something of sufficient size to show the beautiful tonal gradations.

                    The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is that it is a very light worsted weight. Noticeably thicker than DK, still, not quite what I would have liked for a worsted weight.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Delivery took a couple days longer than I would have liked, but then, I am pretty impatient! And there WAS a big sale going on at the time, which always adds a couple of days to the delivery time.

                    Part way through the project, it looked as if I might need a couple more skeins. Customer Service matched the dye lot for me, and the additional skeins arrived promptly.

                    It is almost boring how good the service is at WEBS!

                      This is a surprisingly (to me) fantastic yarn. Beautifully dyed. Easy to work with. Soft and light. Good stitch definition. I will definitely buy more.

                        A delight to work with. No splits, its softness
                        beckons you to knit more -- just one more row...
                        Made a shawl which is light weight, and begs you
                        to snuggle with it. Has good stitch definition.
                        Will purchase again.
