I used Ultra Alpaca Fine to make a pair of opera length gloves. Knitting with the yarn was relatively easy (some splitting) and it was pretty forgiving of mistakes. However, while the yarn does not seem itchy when being knitted, I was disappointed to find the finished product was too rough and itchy to wear. I do not usually have a problem with fabrics being itchy, and I have successfully worn other items made with alpaca. Note that I also found Ultra Alpaca (DK weight, used to make a sweater) to be similarly coarse and itchy when finished. The finished products are beautiful, but I wouldn't recommend this yarn for projects that will be worn next to the skin.

Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Fine:

Yarn was part of a Garter Stitch shawl kit and this yarn in the kit kept splitting as you knit it. Would go back and see stitches with only one ply caught in the stitch.

I'm knitting baby socks with this yarn now but I'm not happy with it because it 'splits'/unravels. very cheap- I'm glad I purchased this yarn with a gift card and not my own money.

    I purchased this online and sent it back because the color was too dark. However, I went to the store recently and saw a sweater knit with this yarn and it was gorgeous! I'm definitely going to try again!

              It takes a lot of stitches to make an inch, because it's so fine. But you can get great detail, because it's so fine. Nice for lace.

                  I bought the grapefruit color to make a pair of Hedgerow pattern socks on size 1's. Ugh. Frustrating yarn- splits constantly, too loose a twist. It's not as soft as other alpaca yarns I've used. Oddly, I bought other colors of this yarn and they are softer. Also, hard to re-knit/fix mistakes.
