I knitted a scarf, it is one of my most soft and warm scarf I have, only problem... it rubbed off on my fingers while I was knitting... Not fun at all! ... I had to wash it after with vinegar to "seal" the colour (deep blue!).

      I finally got around to making myself a sweater and I love it! The yarn was actually a birthday gift from my daughter. The sweater is lovely and will be work a lot! I also love the color - soft chestnut. It knitted up quickly and looks great.

        I made a scarf. It was incredibly soft and looked delicate rather than bulky when finished.

            I am knitting the Helena shawl with this, it's working up beautifully. I purchased the periwinkle color, which is my favorite color. I can't wait to finish it because it's for me! I never have time to knit for myself. So I am pretty excited!

                  This yarn is so soft, it drapes really nicely. I knitted a Hitchhiker Scarf from it (using the lace stitch variation on the bind off rows) and it is gorgeous! And so soft and comfortable to wear against the skin.

                  Making a jacket. A first I didn't think it would work out but then I decided I like it. It doesn't really split but the alpaca in it wants to stick to the other stitches. I do like the color and the softness is wonderful. Just had to get used to working with it. I would use metal needles with not too sharp a tip if I was going to advice anyone on anything. Stitches look like I want them to look so feel it's a great product for the price.
