This has become my "go to" yarn. I've used it for everything from fair isle mittens, to hats, scarves, and sweaters. It is beautifully soft, with a lovely halo. The weight is more like a DK than worsted and seems to work best for me when using size 4.5mm needles. Currently working on a cardigan for me and I'm loving it. It's not just about the finished garment, but the joy of knitting each stitch.

Sheds really badly

Yes, it feels beautifully soft and it crochets up very nicely but the fo ends up looking like you spend your free time volunteering at the dog shelter.

I made gloves...Read complete review

Yes, it feels beautifully soft and it crochets up very nicely but the fo ends up looking like you spend your free time volunteering at the dog shelter.

I made gloves with this and for real, they look like I've been petting a heavily shedding cat. The more I wear them, the worse it gets.

I wouldn't buy it again. It's too bad when you really love the look and feel of a yarn only to have your fo look ratty at the end.

    I'm using this to make an afghan for a wedding gift. The alpaca makes it so lovely and soft, and the wool gives strength and definition to the cables. Lovely.

            Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

            I am almost finished with a sweater I knitted with the Ultra Alpaca and I am very pleased with how easy it is to work with. I love the tweedy green color I bought; I found no knots or other issues with the yarn.. it's not that soft but I think giving it a Eucalan bath will soften it up quite a bit. All in all a good buy.
