I have made 4 Faina scarves with this yarn and the yarn & pattern are perfectly matched. The diamond pattern created by the ssk & k2tog stitches give the yarn the body that alpaca lacks, while the Blue Sky alpaca sport gives the stitch definition that displays the pattern at its best. I've bought more to enjoy the pattern in different colors. I prefer the Lantern Moon wooden needles with 100% alpaca yarns - those ultra-slick metallic needles are too slippery. Having small dogs that paw the knitting or "nest" on my lap mid-row adds to my personal hazards. But I do love this yarn, nice and cushy to grab by the fistful and soft to the hand and face. I wouldn't recommend it for a sweater or even a vest, but in my opinion, it's the fiber, not this particular yarn. I made a sweater & a shawl with 100% alpaca (worsted & lace, respectively) and discarded both. I recommend this unreservedly, in spite of the fiber having its own limitations. We choose the fiber for the soft or the color, but must choose the appropriate pattern for the fiber. Wool/alpaca blends will drape better than wool alone, yet have body that alpaca alone does not. I don't expect cotton to have the body that wool does, and so won't downgrade 100% alpaca because it does not.

I knit a baby cable pullover from this, and knit it at a firm gauge (size 2's & 3's), yet it grew a lot, and after one gentle hand wash it grew even more. The sweater is now too big. I would recommend this only for hats, scarves, etc, IOW only things where the fit won't matter, because it will definitely grow. (yes I did swatch & washed my swatch, but apparently on a larger mass of fabric it has more weight and this causes it to grow).

              I purchased this yarn to make the mosaic scarf found in Vogue Knitting magazine. While this project is challenging for me, the yarn is beautiful and the scarf design and colors are great. I couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.

                  I made an afghan with this yarn and love it. It is light and airy but still warm. The material is very soft and the color almost glows. I love this wool.

                    Soft, soft hand to this beautiful yarn that knits up easily and quickly. I made two infants caps from these yarns and both were happily received by 'Moms' and worn by babies.

                    The yarn does NOT shred, is easy to work (even using small needles - I used #4.

                        Love, love, LOVE this yarn. I used it in a cowl I knitted for a FB friend up in Canada who's allergic to sheep wool, and she absolutely loves it. I'd happily use it again for this and possibly sweaters. If I can get the inner knitter off the cowl/armwarmer/hat kick she's been on lately.
