    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Grande Tweed:

    This winter my son (in Chicago) requested a quick, warm, soft blanket.
    Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande Tweed fit his parameters: SOFT, SOFT, SOFT, and preferably tweedy.
    I loved it so much I used the leftovers for a quick and cute pullover for myself.

    This would not make a good long scarf or sweater as it sheds like mad and sticks to wool and you are a mess.

          I used this soft lovely tweed yarn in two colors, black and white, to make a beanie for an artist (male) friend of mine. He loves the hat. This yarn is soft and easy to knit - I made a simple beanie mostly using the black version of this yarn with a broad stripe of the white version of this same yarn. I would love to experiment with felting this yarn as well at some point (-:
