Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint:

I'm using this to make my first Niebling!!! So excited. The yarn is lovely, so soft and with a slight halo - I think this will be an airy shawl that still holds some warmth. It's a little splitty if I'm not careful with the points on my size 1 Addi turbos, but not that hard to navigate; I'm managing centered double decreases without an issue.

      Bought this yarn for weaving but couldn't wait and started knitting. If you are addicted to lace yarns (I certainly am), you will love this yarn. Slightly slippery to knit, thus the recommendation for bamboo needles. Knits up to make gorgeous fabric!!

        This is a beautiful yarn that knits up easily. You may want to make a tiny swatch to wash to test the colorfastness; I had some bleeding with one of the red colors.

          Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint:

          This is gorgeous yarn and I have used it now for three projects. The red colorway bleeds color quite badly, the other colors I purchased are very pastel and don't run noticeably.

          Promptly delivered in an appropriately protective package.

          Beautiful soft yarn

          By RAH

          About Me Enthusiast, Experienced knitter

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

          • Beautiful colors
          • Dyed Evenly
          • Excellent Yardage
          • Good "carry Along"
          • Nice Texture
          • Soft

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Add Or Strengthen Color
            • Felting
            • Scarves

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint:

            I have used this yarn in several projects (hats, scarves, a sweater vest, others). Normally I use it together with another yarn (or even 2 other lace weight yarns) to emphasize a color in a varigated yarn or add dimension to a solid color yarn, but I have used a single strand of this yarn to make stripes alternated with stripes of a kid mohair/silk blend lace-weight to make a lightly felted shawl - so elegant and beautiful. This yarn is a joy to work with, very soft and warm with no itch, but is too fine for most projects, so works best as a carry along strand. I've never had a problem with knots or thin spots or any of the issues that are sometimes a problem. It is a very high quality yarn, and worth the price.

            I paid for expedited shipping, however received it only 1 day earlier than my previous order with standard shipping. Overall I am very happy with Webs and will continue to order from them.
