      I used this to make a Zelda Cloche. There were so many beautiful colors to choose from. I find myself seeking projects out that I can use this yarn for. The texture and drape and stitch definition were so perfect I didn't want my project to be finished!

      The yarn has a nice gauge to work. Although the pics show a nice 'soft' halo, it feels course on the skin. This yarn is better for outer wear. Be sure to pick the right project for this yarn or you could be disappointed with its rough feel - not the best for a neck scarf.

        Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light:

        Deep, lovely colors; great weight; terrific price. The color is always a surprise, somehow. Love the melange heathers best, and the very slight halo makes it especially nice for scarves, though I have used it with some success for socks.

        Service and delivery comments:

        As usual, great selection and fast delivery!

            Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light:

            I used this yarn to make a sweater. Since I had read that it was very warm, I decided to use a very loose lace stitch. The finished product is very light and see through with the pattern I used. I wore it with a light tank top underneath and it got warm very quickly. If I use this yarn again, I will use it to make an outdoor sweater, meant to be worn outside, or a cardigan or socks etc. I was surprised that it would be so warm with such a wide slipped stitch lace pattern. Loved the yarn, the color and the texture.

              I knit three infinity scarves with this yarn and it worked up beautifully. I used a lace pattern and this yarn really shows of the pretty stitches.

              I made two Christmas gift scarves with lace patterns, using a size 5 needle. The stitches were nicely defined. The yarn twist was consistent and even. The yarn moves off the needle quickly and was very pleasing in the hand as I worked. I will use this product again as it performs well and is reasonably priced. Thank you.

                      This is my favorite new yarn! The DK weight is perfect for creating projects that are not too light... or too heavy. I have used it for lovely shawls, and am currently using it to create the Agatha Cardigan. It is not "splitty" and knits beautifully. It's perfect for items where you want a nice drape. It is very soft and feels wonderful to wear. For my cardigan, I am using the Lavender Mix and the color is fabulous and accurately photographed for the picture on WEBS. I highly recommend using this yarn which is top quality for a VERY reasonable price.
