    Berroco Maya is a silky-soft blend of pima cotton and alpaca in a chainette construction. This worsted weight yarn is surprisingly light and airy, and gives great stitch definition. You'll love Maya's touchable softness for warm weather accessories and garments. Made in Peru.

                  Comments about Berroco Maya:

                  This yarn was very easy to work with when I made a summer top. I liked the fact it was lightweight, but sturdy. I'm not a big fan of chainette construction, but I had no difficulty working with this.

                      This yarn is very beautiful and I will use it again and again.
                      I usually don't like cotton but this is not like cotton although it is. I didn't think there was enough alpaca in it to really make a difference but I was wrong. It doesn't hurt my hands to knit with it and it isn't splitty at all. I don't have anything to say about this yarn that isn't good!

                            I bought a hank of this to make a knitted cowl. It works up beautifully. Soft and drapey. I bought more to knit a shawl with.

                                  A soft yarn, but not fine looking.

                                    The chained ply gives it a very light weight,not heavy like most cotton yarns. So easy to knit and drapes well.
