This yarn has a wonderful heathered look with a soft halo. A sweater that I knit with it exhibits almost no pilling after countless wears. It is important to swatch carefully and to wash the swatch, because alpaca is prone to stretching. I would use this yarn for sweaters and gloves, but would find it a touch too scratchy for scarves. Will definitely purchase it again!

I bought this yarn for a sweater, and I have mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, it is comparatively soft, and I like the halo, and it does not shed that much (although there is still some minor shedding), but it splits horribly while knitting! The stitch definition is NOT perfect either even though I knit tight and I used needles # 3, not the recommended ones. I would not buy it again although it is was not completely a disaster, I am tired of splitting issues. Very annoying.

    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Inca Alpaca:

    I used this yarn to knit a scarf for a friend, and I'm glad she chose this yarn, because it's very soft and will feel great next to the skin. It comes in great colors, and knits up fast.

            I used this yarn to knit a blanket for
            my greatgrandniece. It knit up beautifully
            and was a pleasure to handle.

              I have knit several scarves with this yarn since everyone who has seen my first scarf wanted one too!

              It is soft and warm and the colors are great.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Webs' service is great; delivery arrives before I expect it.

                I've made two capelets and a sweater from this beautiful yarn, and have 28 skeins left...I've stockpiled it! Beautiful hand, lovely coloring, very lightweight yet warm. I'm an intermediate (but slow) knitter, and this is the most beautiful and versatile yarn I've ever used. Am planning another sweater from it now....

                Scratchy!

                Nice to work with, very pretty colors, but this yarn is really scratchy, and felts with even the gentlest of washing. I find it hard to believe it's really 100% apaca.
