I love the colors available. I love the feel of the yarn, the speed of the chunky and the way the finished projects look. I have purchased upwards of 25 skeins of this yarn in different colors -- some with the thread of sparkle. I have made at least 10 pairs of fingerless mitts with it and now have 11 skeins of purple ready to go into a sweater for myself -- I am going to be using a Plymouth pattern for this long length cardigan sweater!

Sheds

Loved this color, made a cowl, every time I got up from knitting I was covered in fuzz, going have to be careful what I wear this cowl with.

Love this yarn for wristlets, mittens, hats and scarves.

    I've gotten this yarn in several colors. I made one big scarf with it,and I have plans for additional scarves and a hat. The only down side is that it does shed. Next time I will wash the skein of yarn before knitting with it.

        Comments about true Baby Alpaca Grande:

        This is my favorite yarn, the softest thing I've ever owned. it knits up quickly for super soft accessories. I have not had excessive shedding issues, in fact there has almost been no shedding. Highly recommend this for projects were softness is paramount.

        Don't go by the color names, the pictures are more accurate. Pink heather is not really pink but verges on a lavender with red undertones. Very pretty.

        SO soft -- used for scarves -- turned out beautifully. Does shed a little, which is the only downside.
