I wove a shawl and an infinity wrap with this yarn, and was so happy with the results I am about to order more. I wove the first two items with the same yarn as weft, but then I sampled using 8/2 tencel weft and the shiny/matte contrast is gorgeous, so my next pieces will use a tencel weft. THanks to all the reviewers who helped me realize a sett of 24 would work just fine for the diamond twill I used.

The yarn was beautiful but completely inaccurate and a different, lighter tone than what is described in the picture. The yarn itself, other thasn color us as described. The problem with the color was not due to different screen colors.. it was the same on every screen I opened it on, including the customer service representative I called at WEBS... they literally got up and grabbed a few cones and confirmed all of them were much lighter than what was described in picture... (while they were pleasant about it, I still had to ask for them to do this.)
Again, the color was beautiful but not a true representation of the picture and what was described.
The yarn itself is amazing, just the wrong color.

          I have been looking for a lacy, delicate yarn to make a poncho for my daughter. This yarn is perfect for the pattern I picked out.

              I originally bought this yarn to use in weaving but then I needed something thin enough and soft enough to ply with some wool/bamboo I had spun. The yarn turned out gorgeous. I can see I will need to buy more of this scrumptious yarn.

                  • Lace shawls esp Estonian lace

                  Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn 2/14 Alpaca Silk:

                  Beautiful. Perfect for lace weight projects, not cobweb or insubstantial, but creates a beautiful light airy fabric with nice drape and warmth. Just as soft as you would imagine this mix (I was concerned the price I got it for (on sale) would reflect poor quality alpaca, but no!). Colors: Black: This is NOT jet black. But it is darker than a dark heather or charcoal gray. Definitely has the color variation in the fibers you see in the picture. Navy: Exactly as expected. Eggplant. More of a true purple than the picture showed. I was expecting purple X dusty gray, but it has no dusty look or gray. Not what I was hoping for but is a beautiful purple. I will be buying more for Estonian shawl making every time it's on sale. I may even use it for my sister's wedding shawl when that comes around.

                    Comments about Yarn > Knitting Yarn 2/14 Alpaca Silk:

                    This yarn knits up beautifully. It is soft and easy to work with and correct mistakes. The finished product of a lace shawl is stunning. The only con I have with this product is that in the joining of plies in production there are small knots in the individual plies that will come apart with tension. Keeping an eye out as you knit for these is important however I have this in three different colors and will continue to work with it.
