          Comments about Cascade Yarns Alpaca Lace:

          This was used in 3 different shawls of 1000+ yards. I never really had a problem with it other then it likes to grab on to other stitches as you rip out rows. I expected this though. I'm not sure where the other one star ratings came from. I've used this plenty of times and have never had a problem. Its very durable once knit up as long as you're not dragging it along a bed of nails. Its also extremely soft. There have been instances where I have gotten some plant fibers in the yarn but those were easy to pick out.

                I purchased this yarn to knit a scarf for my step-mom figuring it would be a lovely yarn since it is alpaca. Boy was I wrong. This yarn is not soft at all, I am extremely disappointed.

                I will not purchase this again.

                    Unsatisfactory - will not use again

                    By Knits too much

                    from Loveland, CO

                    Pros

                    • Alpaca Fiber
                    • Lovely colors

                    Cons

                    • Made Me Unhappy
                    • Poor Grade Of Fiber
                    • Splits Easily
                    • Stiff and scratchy

                    Best Uses

                    • Leave it at the store
                    • Leave It In The Skein

                    Comments about Cascade Yarns Alpaca Lace:

                    Alpaca fiber should be soft, buttery and delicious to knit with. This yarn has none of those properties. Its beautiful in the skein, but once you start to knit, its poor quality is evident. Likely made from low grade alpaca. Do yourself a favor and purchase a superfine baby alpaca yarn - you will have a much better knitting experience.

                          I'm using it doubled to knit an Aran hoodie for my daughter for Christmas. Yes. It's already time to start those lengthy projects! I wanted to k it her something finer than the utility sweaters I crank out for her. It has a nice silky hand and I think it would make a wonderful pair of special socks to coordinate with the Aran hoodie!

                            This is a wonderful yarn, It is very soft and a good weight for lace. The colors are much better than the pictures depict.
