    Comments about CASCADE YARNS Baby Alpaca Chunky Discontinued Colors:

    I love Cascade's Baby Alpaca Chunky! It is one of my favorite yarns to knit with. It is so soft and cushy with a slight color variation (just enough to give it a little interest). I have made several items (blankets, hats, scarves) with it and will continue to do so. I love it. As a side note, it does pill a little, but that's to be expected with alpaca.

        Comments about CASCADE YARNS Baby Alpaca Chunky Discontinued Colors:

        Love the yarn. Extremely soft. Bought it in lake Chelan heather, but I am a little disappointed in the color because online the stock photo looks like a darker teal, but in person it's more aqua looking. Still very pretty and will keep the yarn, just would have liked it better if the color were slightly darker like the picture shows.

              Comments about CASCADE YARNS Baby Alpaca Chunky Discontinued Colors:

              I've knit a hat with this and will try a sweater next. It's amazingly soft and nice for how cheap it is! Even at full price I think it's a fantastic deal.

              It stretches out a bit and relaxes, so take that into account. Definitely go down an additional needle size for ribbing.

              Very happy with how soft it is, but the color was not true to the photo on yarn.com. The picture showed a forest green but the actual yarn was a very dark greenish, swampy brown. I am not happy with the color, but my boyfriend doesn't mind it and the sweater is for him. So there you go.

                  This yarn is soft and easy to knit with, and my end product turned out beautifully. The only con I would say is when cabling (I made a cabled hat), the part of the hat that was cabled was ovbiously much more frizzy than the rest of the hat, which took away from the overall beauty and consistent look of the hat. Also, if you have to remove rows and start over, the yarn gets frizzy very fast compared to other Alpaca yarns I've used of the same weight.

                  I have a difficult time working with yarn that does not intrigue my hands...and Cascade yarn seems to be a great fit for me. I have knit up three hats in about four days. This yarn is easy to work with and knits into lovely patterns that are pleasing to the eye. I will definitely stash up!
