I bought this yarn to knit the Radiance Shawl, written by Helen Stewart. This yarn is PERFECT for the weight and feel that I wanted to achieve. I am knitting on a size 3 Addi needle, as I like a tighter weave. While I tend to not care for a variegated yarn, the colors in this color wash blend beautifully. I expect my finished project to block out well. I have no complaints about this yarn.

The three stars = "average, ordinary" for me means that while this yarn is beautiful, it won't meet the needs I have for socks that stand up to how we live here in the land of giant ferns and banana slugs. I started a pair of socks with this yarn. First I had to keep shrinking my hook from the usual B to steel 1, then 2, then 3. This wasn't easy, as the finish of the yarn is rather fuzzy. As the stitches emerged, I realized there's no way this fabric would hold up to the rigors of Alpine boots or hiking sandals slogging through mud and water. I found it way too thin, and the two plys seemed constantly wanting a divorce from each other. So I frogged out the footie and have plans to carry two strands of the yarn for a more decorative garment. It's really pretty stuff.

        The socks I made have become somewhat felted on the bottoms after washing in cold water and wearing. They are VERY soft and comfortable.

          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Alpaca Sox Discontinued Colors:

          The photos make this look like a loosely spun yarn prone to splitting, but it's not! It knits up evenly and smoothly, and the colors are just stunning. The texture of finished pieces is wonderfully soft (with a little "fuzz" but no scratchiness) and slightly springy. One hank provides plenty for a big, cozy cowl and a pair of mitts, making it my new go-to for a quick gift set.

          Service and delivery comments:

          As always, the customer service was impeccable. My product arrived on-time and in great condition.

                My skein is full weight, and wound without knots or any other problems. It is soft , fluffy, and smooth. My intended use was in color stranded mittens, and this is probably not the best use. Something a bit heartier would do better here, and this put into a shawl or scarf where the softness would be a real advantage.
