      Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Discontinued Colors:

      I love this weight and it works well for cables, gives you a nice textured cable and is easy to block into an almost lacy skirt.

      Because it is wool and alpaca it is very warm and soft, it doesn't need to be thick and heavy to be warm. I love working with it and most of all i love wearing it!

      Web has a nice selection, fast mailing and great bulk prices.

        Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Discontinued Colors:

        I am knitting my first project in many years. I love the feel of this yarn. The fine Alpaca fuzzies are new to me. I hope they don't tickle my nose when I wear this Shrug. I haven't finished this, so I don't know about washing it, however the swatch washed and was right on the gauge. Love the color green #6262

        I'm only on the first skein of use, but I'm really enjoying the Alpaca. It has a softness with the Alpaca in it, and the color is saturated and gorgeous.

          I just love working with this product,love the feel of this yarn, softness, etc. If I wished for anything, I would probably like just a bit more alpaca in the blend, e.g., 40%wool 60% alpaca. As for service, it's outstanding, usually faster than FedEx.

            Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Discontinued Colors:

            Wonderful yarn. Only complaint was the color, which was a bit drab - I ordered Forest Floor. I'll probably order a more vibrant color when it comes available for under $6.

            Service and delivery comments:

            Quick delivery! Great service.

                I love working on this yarn. It has a wonderful hand. I haven't found knots, etc. have made lots of hats, scarves, and a beautiful warm throw for winter reading in a big chair. Am going to make a sweater for a friend next.

                  Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Discontinued Colors:

                  I am knitting my first Knitscene pattern with this glorious wool (knitscene Winter/Dec 2012 - sweater #20 - Minnette Pullover by Cassie Castillo). I am just finishing the bottom band of this knit-all-in-one-piece-masterpiece-sweater and I am beyond thrilled. The yarn is luxurious, the colour (fuchsia) is saturated and even. The yardage - at this price - is incredibly good and very inexpensive for the quality. The hanks wound easily into balls and joins are minimal. I cannot say enough great things about this yarn and will be knitting MANY more projects with it. Berroco quality makes them the top US yarn maker in my opinion.
