While the colors are gorgeous and the yarn is soft, I found this yarn to be very difficult to work with as it has no stretch whatsoever. Perhaps part of the problem was I used too small a needle size, but I went with what gave me the correct gauge, which in retrospect was a huge mistake. But I was using a pattern that called for this yarn and I've never really had a problem with my gauge being off. I had to use so much pressure to knit with this yarn that my fingers and hands became sore - I totally understand the previous reviewer who said that she has two broken wrists. In the process of fighting with the yarn, it frequently split, especially on the crocheted border. Plus, one of the skeins had frayed yarn in two places. Finally, the manufacturer recommends dry cleaning!

      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).
