          Comments about Shibui Baby Alpaca DK:

          This yarn is a dream to work with. Its weight and handling make me feel like a pro.

          I began to crochet two years ago starting with synthetic materials for a major yarn bombing project. I've graduated to Good Yarn and am totally enamored with alpaca. I make neck warmers, mitts, shawls, hats and shrugs.

              Comments about Shibui Baby Alpaca DK:

              I used this yarn a number of times for ladies sweaters. It knits up great and is really soft. It is warm, but not bulky. The sweaters have a nice drape. This yarn shows the patterns and stitches really nicely. I love this yarn. It does get costly, though, if you need alot of yardage.

                  Comments about Shibui Baby Alpaca DK:

                  When you take a lot of pride in your finished garment, it does not pay to knit with anything other than the best on the market. I have used many, many yards of this wonderful yarn for knitting cowls, stoles and wraps. I find the color is extremely consistent, even when I have to add on another skein of the same color with a different dye lot. Also, a strand of this yarn pairs up quitely nicely with a strand of Shibui Silk Cloud for a beautiful "halo". The spit splice method works well with this yarn and so I never have a knot or have to work in yarn ends in any garments knitted with Shibui Baby Alpaca DK. Thanks for offering this super product!

                      Made scarf that still looks like new after 3 years. So soft and pleasure to knit with.
