    Disappointed

    I made a sweater with this yarn, while it was beautiful to work with, it pilled so badly with a couple of washings. Very disapointed

    Comments about Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton:

    This yarn is my new favorite! It is 100% ORGANIC cotton (I noticed it did not state "organic" in the online description. This yarn is very, very soft and easy to work with. The only thing I have bad to say about it is that I found a knot in the second skein of yarn I was knitting with (one where the yarn broke, so they "fixed it" by knotting it).

    This yarn is definitely very delicate, and should be hand washed. Another thing worth mentioning is that it is a HEAVY worsted yarn. I did not like how it was knitting up on size 6 or 7 needles, and am currently making a sweater with it that calls for bulky yarn and size 10 needles (and its looking great).

          Love this yarn. I just started a pullover and the yarn knits up easy and fast. The weight is perfect for a cool summer evening. I will buy more in a different color.

                    I bought this to make a baby blanket that I found on another yarn site. Their price was a lot higher to buy the kit of yarn needed and I found the exact same yarn here instead. The colours are beautiful and bang on to what I wanted. The yarn feels heavy but soft and workable and looks like great quality. I have yet to really get into making the blanket but so far I'm very happy!! It was so easy to order and came quite fast (I'm in Canada).

                              I make lovely and appreciated baby blankets. If the parent decides to machine wash it may shrink a bit but I have never had any complaints and new parents seem to love it and use it.
