Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Discontinued Colors:

I am planning on using this yarn in a shawl. I have not started the shawl yet, so I cannot give information about using it. It is a beautiful color - Sienna.

Made a lacy pullover. The yarn is tightly twist (not splitty) and no knots in all three skeins.

    Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Discontinued Colors:

    Although this fabulous mocha brown color has been discontinued (I knew I should have gotten more!) I will be buying more Silky Lace Alpaca for scarves, shawls and sweaters in the future. Sure, there is a little bit of shedding, but it's alpaca. (It's hardly noticeable, but some people do not like any shedding.) It's very soft, not splitty and easy to rip out and re-do errors. The price made the choice an absolute bargain, but even at the regular price I'd be interested. I'm not finished with my shawl yet, so I can't comment on how it wears over time.

      I love, LOVE, this yarn. My finished shawls always block out beautifully. Soft, warm, and the most important part for me, being wool sensitive; NOT itchy!!!! Yeah, I have to keep finding new shawl patterns for all the wonderful colors. I HIGHLY recommend this beautiful yarn!

        Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Discontinued Colors:

        I use this product to decorate many items and help them look more feminine and frilly. It really gives a finishing touch to many items. It takes longer to make items as it is such a delicate thread.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The product arrived in less than a week, right to my door out in the country. The box was intact, looked like new and the UPS drives brought it right up to the door with a pleasant smile and cheerful hello.
