    I bought this yarn to knit the Radiance Shawl, written by Helen Stewart. This yarn is PERFECT for the weight and feel that I wanted to achieve. I am knitting on a size 3 Addi needle, as I like a tighter weave. While I tend to not care for a variegated yarn, the colors in this color wash blend beautifully. I expect my finished project to block out well. I have no complaints about this yarn.

    The three stars = "average, ordinary" for me means that while this yarn is beautiful, it won't meet the needs I have for socks that stand up to how we live here in the land of giant ferns and banana slugs. I started a pair of socks with this yarn. First I had to keep shrinking my hook from the usual B to steel 1, then 2, then 3. This wasn't easy, as the finish of the yarn is rather fuzzy. As the stitches emerged, I realized there's no way this fabric would hold up to the rigors of Alpine boots or hiking sandals slogging through mud and water. I found it way too thin, and the two plys seemed constantly wanting a divorce from each other. So I frogged out the footie and have plans to carry two strands of the yarn for a more decorative garment. It's really pretty stuff.

              I am not a fan of the stitch definition in alpaca yarn but I loved the colors so I tried several skeins. The yarn knit up nicely and made great warm mitts which were an immediate hit with my knitting club.
              As usual, Webs is so efficient and fast on delivery.

                I knitted socks. They are wonderfully soft and warm. However, even with careful handwashing and air drying, they shrink and felt. This yarn is so luscious that it would make a beautiful scarf. Better for scarves than for socks or mittens.

                  This was my first experience with Classic Elite Alpaca Sox yarn and I was pleased. Although alpaca is not my "go to" yarn it wound well from the hank and knitted up quickly even using #2 needles. Despite its looser spin I had no problem with splitting. The colors are gorgeous. I especially love the Flamingo.
                  Webs always provides great service.

                  Shed some as I was winding, but that let up after use. Good yardage for a generous stole, shawl, or scarf. My project was a Willow cowl, free Ravelry pattern. The result was quite satisfactory.
