      Comments about Misti Alpaca Chunky Discontinued Colors:

      I've bought this yarn in many colors to knit into scarves. Every color has been beautiful, and true to it's on-line depiction, at least on my computer. Very soft to the touch, knits up fast on US11, with great stitch definition. It does shed, which I've found to be the case with pure baby alpaca yarns, but considering all the pros, it's still a 5-star in my opinion. Service from this site has always been great!

          I bought a pink shade to make a cable cowl, then had second thoughts about the length and ordered more to make the cowl around four feet long. The yarn is a complete pleasure to use. They were no knots in the skeins. It is so soft and the color saturation is gorgeous.(Different dye lots matched perfectly.)

              I'm making a throw blanket with it. It is warm and rich feeling. It knits beautifully showing all the great details of your work and the color I chose has wonderful red flecks in it that show up enhancing the look of the blanket. I live this yarn!

              Comments about Misti Alpaca Chunky Discontinued Colors:

              I love alpaca for its soft texture, and it is hyperallergenic. I make mittens out of it and donate them to my church Christmas fair. Alpaca is not so good for sweaters because it pills.

              Service and delivery comments:

              The website was super easy to navigate, and I received my purchase in a few days. Wonderful! The only thing better than shopping online is making the long drive to shop in the store itself. I love Webs!!

              Comments about Misti Alpaca Chunky Discontinued Colors:

              Like the previous reviewer, I LOVE soft yarn, and knit for people who won't wear anything remotely scratchy. This yarn is probably the softest I've seen, so easy to work with, and looks beautiful knit up. The pink is gorgeous, and I only wish there were additional closeout colors!
