The 35 gram balls are ideal for small projects, and Blue Sky Alpaca has a special collection of patterns just for Royal Petites. Think cozy hats, delicate lace, graceful mitts, and sweet baby sets. Made in Peru.
tyring to make cables using this yarn, knitting in the round isn't the easier thing. I am making a pair of gloves which i saw in vogue. The yarn is soft and pretty but I have had to take a long time to get the job done. I would use a bamboo product if you are doing the same. The yarn does split a bit as well but I'm sure when I get done it will be worth it.
I bought this yarn in six different colours to make the baby booties from the Knit Simple 2013 Holiday Issue. The colour swatches shown on Webs are true to the colours I received.
This yarn is probably the softest product I have ever worked with, all the ladies I knit with commented that they couldn't believe how soft the knitted fabric was! It has a bit of a halo to it once knit but still shows lovely stitch definition.
Because of the nature of the yarn, it does felt a tiny bit as you knit and if you have to pull out any stitches you will probably notice that the yarn gets a bit fuzzier, but since it's 100% alpaca I feel this is to be expected.
