    I have used this yarn many times and loved it. However when I received by shipment I was terribly disappointed as it was faded and looked like old stock. Also, I could not return these items as they were a Closeout item. Lesson learned after spending over $70.00

                    I like to knit with large needles! But yarn must be light so that scarves, sweaters or vests are not too heavy!

                        I used this to knit a sweater from the Misty Alpaca Heritage pattern booklet. It works up beautifully and quickly. Misty Alpaca Hand Paint Chunky is a superior yarn.
