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!

I made a hat and mittens with this yarn. These looked beautiful initially, but didn't wear very well. The mittens got very felted from just one session of cross-country skiing. The hat shrank from being handwashed in cold water. Despite being slightly oversized initially, after just 2 washes it was too small to wear.

        Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light:

        I buy most of my yarn from Webs/Yarn.com. Ive never had a problem with any of it. The one time I returned yarn to them was due to a color issue; my computer showed a light tan (which is what I thought I ordered) and it was bright lime green when it arrived. Webs took the yarn back with no questions! Berroco yarn is one of my favorites; can't buy it locally!

          This yarns knits up beautifully and quite quick. I am still working on my project a shawl for my sister-in-law. I would like it a bit softer, but I think after I wash it it will become softer. I will buy this yarn again.

                    I used this yarn to knit a pair of fingerless mitts. It knitted up quickly. I had a frog a few times and the yarn held up after being knit with several times. The color was true to what I saw on the site. I only wish I would have picked a slightly lighter color, the fuzziness of it didn't make my special stitch design stand out as much as I would have liked.
