Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Aire

Plymouth Baby Alpaca Aire is true to its name! This soft chainette yarn is super airy and lofty-- it's a great worsted weight, and when knit with a  bigger size needle, the looped fibers puff up to create the fluffiest fabric. Baby Alpaca Aire is springy to knit; the chainette construction gives the alpaca more elasticity, so large projects won't stretch out. All that, plus glorious color in solids and heathers, and the sumptuous feel of 100% alpaca! Made in Peru

        The yarn And it's color was exactly what I wanted, but note that the picture color online was darker than the actual color sent, which, as above worked for me. And, delivery was prompt. I will use this site again.

            Bought this a year ago and finally decided to make a shawl. Decided to make a Rowan sweater instead and was thrilled to see it offered again in my color!

              Beautiful soft yarn. I'm allergic to many wool yarns, and this feels wonderful on my hands.

              I always use the basic delivery and I receive my orders so quickly. Very good service.

                This is a really soft yarn with very good subtle colour variation. It is very similar to Rowan Lima yarn.

                            Comments about Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Aire:

                            This is my first foray into chainette yarns. Once I figure out hook size and tension, I think the results will be lofty, soft, and altogether lovely... but right now I'm struggling with stitches being too tight to show off the yarn properly. (That's my issue, not the yarn's!)

                            My stitch pattern is mostly plain but with a bit of cabling -- the jury is still out whether the stitch definition will work with this yarn. I'm making the plain parts first to get used to the yarn, and will see how things look a little further into the project.

                            Bottom line: it's a beautiful product, lovely to work with, but does require some skill and thinking about appropriate uses. I'm making a sleeveless vest for my mom-in-law, and I think she will love the softness and loft (and her favourite colour).

                              I knitted three strands together for a tunic vest with a honeycomb pattern. It was incredibly light and soft and an absolute pleasure to knit. The finished product is my favorite knitted piece--and I have been knitting for 58 years!

                                      I needed a bulky but non itchy yarn to combine with others for a collar and cuffs of a coat. This is great.
