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.

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 first used this yarn to make a pullover for my son-in-law. The pattern was Feldspar by Nora Gaughan. My husband liked it so much, he insisted on one for himself. That is almost complete. I like the way the yarn feels and knits up.

              Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

              Ultra Alpaca is about wonderful for sweaters. It is warm, wears well,holds its shape and blocks beautifully. Little inconsistencies in knitting are almost completely hidden after the yarn blooms in blocking. I wet blocked soaking 5 minutes in Euculan.

                Always have a few Ultra Alpaca in my stash. It's a good staple. It holds cables well, so I use it for winter cabled hats a lot, and also gloves. If I make a hat with it, I won't block it. Ultra Alpaca can get annoyingly loose.

                        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.
