    Not a Good Warp Yarn

    The colors and finished shawl and scarf were gorgeous, but a lot of blood, sweat and tears with snapping warps, especially the gray.

        Comments about Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk:

        2/14 alpaca silk worked well as warp. It was recommentded to use 18-20 dent for warp using this product and this worked well. 18 dent could have been used for a better drape.

        Service and delivery comments:

        delivery of product was a little slower than mentioned, although it was all within reason.

        Much finer than expected, I misread the discription and actually needed the next weight up. I can use this for something but will have to buy more yarn to make the original project.

                Amazing texture that's very easy to knit. I ordered it to do lace, but it can be used with smaller needles to produce a fluffy, yet warm texture unlike anything I've ever used!

                The choice of colors is great, and the price is right!

                Service and delivery comments:

                On my doorstep the day I ordered it!

                    My husband and I are weavers in retirement. We love 2/14 alpaca/silk for quality scarves and shawls> Even though we are Americans living in France, I would order this product again and again despite the shipping costs. I earlier had said in a review that I thought that the yardage was less than stated, but it was my error. I later found I had another cone, I had forgotten I ordered.
