I wove a shawl and an infinity wrap with this yarn, and was so happy with the results I am about to order more. I wove the first two items with the same yarn as weft, but then I sampled using 8/2 tencel weft and the shiny/matte contrast is gorgeous, so my next pieces will use a tencel weft. THanks to all the reviewers who helped me realize a sett of 24 would work just fine for the diamond twill I used.

The yarn was beautiful but completely inaccurate and a different, lighter tone than what is described in the picture. The yarn itself, other thasn color us as described. The problem with the color was not due to different screen colors.. it was the same on every screen I opened it on, including the customer service representative I called at WEBS... they literally got up and grabbed a few cones and confirmed all of them were much lighter than what was described in picture... (while they were pleasant about it, I still had to ask for them to do this.)
Again, the color was beautiful but not a true representation of the picture and what was described.
The yarn itself is amazing, just the wrong color.

24 epi works best for me

By Rebecca in egr

from East Grand Rapids, michigan

Pros

  • Good Weight

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Scarves

    Comments about Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk:

    I love this yarn! I use it...a lot...for weaving, but I think the recommended sett should be 24 epi for twills. I just finished a scarf at 20 epi and it is spaced too widely, and I wish I had sampled!,, Well, I DID sample, but I was too lazy to change reeds......next time I will listen to that little voice telling me to take the time to change the reed!

            This is so easy to work with, even on the spools. It seems to just fly onto the needles and knits up so smoothly. Using it double is easy - it doesn't twist or bunch up and tangle easily either. I loved making the sweater I made and I think I have enough left to make a shawl too.

                  I'm using this to make the sweater that's featured on the same page as the yarn, changing the sweater to have long sleeves.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I knew when I ordered the yarn that the color I wanted was back-ordered. When it was ready to ship I was contacted to make sure that I still wanted the yarn. I appreciated that since it had been a while and I might have changed my mind. It's nice to know that you won't get stuck paying shipping to return something that you've decided you don't want.

                    I bought this with a gift card given for Christmas. I like that the yarn comes on a cone - I find that easier to handle when knitting. I haven't used it yet except for a swatch but I am looking forward to doing some nice lace work with it. Love the color and feel. I hope it blocks well.
