Super soft, silky, squishy!

The color I ordered is called Verdigris- looked like bluish-teal, it's actually a dusty emerald, very green. Very nicely plied, not a single knot or join in any of the three skeins....Read complete review

The color I ordered is called Verdigris- looked like bluish-teal, it's actually a dusty emerald, very green. Very nicely plied, not a single knot or join in any of the three skeins. Can't wait to use it! Only thing that kept me from giving 5 stars is the weight; it's not really quite worsted weight, closer to DK.

silky soft but off=putting color

Lovely soft silky yarn with real strength so knits up hard wearing and tough. Great stitch definition. This is such a great yarn I am going to try to save it by over-dying it...Read complete review

Lovely soft silky yarn with real strength so knits up hard wearing and tough. Great stitch definition. This is such a great yarn I am going to try to save it by over-dying it a decent rich brown. I looked at the color picture on five different machines before I ordered TWO FULL BAGS of this yarn and I was bitterly disappointed when it arrived and glowed a baleful sickly greenish brown in the light. It is nothing like the photo on the web site. They should take it down or add a warning. I would not recommend this color to a friend but would recommend the yarn base.

    Comments about Cascade Yarns Pure Alpaca:

    I love working with alpaca yarn. It is easy to knit and felt. It works up easily and has great texture as well as being soft to the touch. I love the way it dyes. I often buy discontinued yarns in colors I don't usually work with knowing I can dye the skeins easily...

                  I have not made anything with this yarn yet, but have a poncho pattern in mind. I have put the yarn into pull skeins. And the yarn feels fabulous.

                      Haven't used this yarn yet. It was a discontinued color, so I bought enough to make a sweater. The color is beautiful and the yarn is very soft. I think it should knit up nicely.
