      Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca:

      I really like the feel and handling of this yarn. I knit a jumper for my daughter who lives in Seattle. She chose the pattern and is thrilled with it so I am knitting another in green with a fleck of yellow that gives it a little light to the green. Although it is not machine washable I expect it will not be hard to launder by hand. I discovered a mistake and had to pull out about 4 inches. It came out smooth and was easy to pick up and go on.

          I've used this in Denim--my daughter's fav. First made beanies, then bracelets, then headband. She wants EVERYTHING in this color and yarn...fingerless mittens, leg warmers, vest, sweater (uh, sweater, not until I get better LOL). The color is truly beautiful and, for some reason, it looks even more vibrant in sunlight.

                  This yarn was so beautiful in the shawl I knitted that I promptly ordered more in another color for a different shawl.

                        I'm about half way through a sweater and it's so much fun to use. Great stitch definition for all the complicated cables and I love the soft texture. I'm guessing it will shed a bit because of the fairly loose twist and it does split a little, but other than that it's perfect. Just bought more yesterday in the May Anniversary sale for 2 more Christmas gift sweaters!
