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.

    Good yarn, good price

    Pros

    • Nice Texture
    • Soft

    Cons

    • Loosely Plied

    Best Uses

      Comments about Valley Yarns 2/14 Alpaca Silk:

      I am using this yarn to knit a very large circular lace shawl with beads. I was concerned about the yarn's durability with the loose ply, so I have run the yarn through my spinning wheel to add a little twist. Also, as a result of the loose ply, the yarn has a tendency to split, especially when adding beads using the crochet hook method.

      Otherwise I am happy with the texture, softness and stitch definition. The yarn is a little 'fuzzy' (likely due to the alpaca contact) so expect a bit of a halo.

            My first order was for 9 cones to weave up Christmas scarves. They were so beautiful, soft and luxurious, and for the three generations of recipients of the gifts, every single one across the lifestyle gaps-male and female, not only put them on right then and there, but caressed and petted them repeatedly! It wove up fantastic as lace and played nicely for pattern weave. I had fun designing these scarves for the many different tastes and styles, and I ordered 9 more cones to continue the fun! I love this stuff!

            I am using this for the Heliotaxis pattern by Renata Brenner. I purchased this during a recent sale and am quite please with the way it is working up. You must be careful to catch both strands especially with things like K3tog and PSSO.
