Super soft, silky, squishy!

The color I ordered is called Verdigris- looked like bluish-teal, it's actually a dusty emerald, very green. Very nicely plied, not a single knot or join in any of the three skeins....Read complete review

The color I ordered is called Verdigris- looked like bluish-teal, it's actually a dusty emerald, very green. Very nicely plied, not a single knot or join in any of the three skeins. Can't wait to use it! Only thing that kept me from giving 5 stars is the weight; it's not really quite worsted weight, closer to DK.

silky soft but off=putting color

Lovely soft silky yarn with real strength so knits up hard wearing and tough. Great stitch definition. This is such a great yarn I am going to try to save it by over-dying it...Read complete review

Lovely soft silky yarn with real strength so knits up hard wearing and tough. Great stitch definition. This is such a great yarn I am going to try to save it by over-dying it a decent rich brown. I looked at the color picture on five different machines before I ordered TWO FULL BAGS of this yarn and I was bitterly disappointed when it arrived and glowed a baleful sickly greenish brown in the light. It is nothing like the photo on the web site. They should take it down or add a warning. I would not recommend this color to a friend but would recommend the yarn base.

        I have not made anything with this yarn yet, but have a poncho pattern in mind. I have put the yarn into pull skeins. And the yarn feels fabulous.

            Haven't used this yarn yet. It was a discontinued color, so I bought enough to make a sweater. The color is beautiful and the yarn is very soft. I think it should knit up nicely.

              Comments about Cascade Yarns Pure Alpaca:

              I ordered this yarn as a good guess (I love Cascade Yarn products), never having seen or felt this in a store. It was my Christmas present from me to me. I was amazed at how wonderfully soft and consistent this yarn proved. I don't recall running into even one single knot in any of the 7 hanks I used for my project. The poncho I made has a wonderful drape! I look forward to using this yarn in the future!

                I am making a scarf with this yarn. The yarn is so soft and easy to work with.
                The color I am using is sapphire and it is a beautiful color. The color was very close to what I saw on my computer screen. I am very pleased!

                    Alpaca items for new babies are a perfect use for this product. Even though the babies grow out of it quickly it is soft on their skin and looks lovely

                      This was a fun yarn to make my ponytail hat. It worked smoothly on my nickle needles. I did have to go down a needle size to obtain gauge....so I would recommend you do a sample swatch to check your gauge. Very reasonable price for such beautiful quality. Will definitely use for future projects.
