I love yarn that is either softly varigated, or it multi-colored, mindfully variaged. Have you ever bought a ball of yarn because the colors look good wound, and then you make the sock and are like, "ewww?" I know. This yarn looks good both wound, and all knit up! I love it! I made a hat with a cable four pattern. I'm not talking big cabled braids or anything you might be making to put on a fisherman, just something you might be making to put on a friend who, in my case, happens to be a postal worker. Being a friend, she says she loves the hat already without ever having seen it, but you know what? She is going to love its pretty color, its soft texture, the slight varigation that doesn't overpower the cable pattern, the light color, on the contrary, letting my little cable pattern, 'pop,' as they say. I would buy it again!

It knit up beautifully. I knit a complex cable tunic; this had great stich definition. The soft tones in the colorway are exquisite and blend well.
I have now worn it for three months - maybe weekly.
Hand washed and reblocked very carefully (been knitting for 60 years.)It pills so badly it is now unwearable; the fuzz is covering the cables. I have used other alpaca blends, never had this great a problem.

    I used this to make stranded mittens and the tonal coloring looked great. The alpaca content makes them very warm, too.

            I haven't knitted it up yet, but I can say the color way and mix of colors is gorgeous (purple mix). Feels so soft. Seems like it will be perfect.

              Comments about Misti Alpaca Tonos Worsted:

              I made an infinity cowl with this. The soft tone on tone color emphasizes textural stitches nicely. The only drawback to this yarn is how much the finish project stretches when its worn. It's very drapey.

                Absolutely gorgeous yarn! I'd heard of this company before but had never worked with their product. I chose this yarn for the colorway (TW 21 burgundy/wine) and fiber blend. I am not at all disappointed and will be buying this brand again.

                        I bought this to make a scarf. It has a lovely color and knits nicely but it's not as soft as the Blue Sky Worsted Hand Dyes which are only a couple dollars more.
