    I used this to make a Zelda Cloche. There were so many beautiful colors to choose from. I find myself seeking projects out that I can use this yarn for. The texture and drape and stitch definition were so perfect I didn't want my project to be finished!

    I made a hat and mittens with this yarn. These looked beautiful initially, but didn't wear very well. The mittens got very felted from just one session of cross-country skiing. The hat shrank from being handwashed in cold water. Despite being slightly oversized initially, after just 2 washes it was too small to wear.

      Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light:

      This line from Berroco is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. If it was just a bit more alpaca than wool, I would give it 5 stars. I have made shawls with this weight & my favorite project is a brioche cowl with the bulky weight version. It has beautiful color, it reads as solid, but on closer inspection has incredible depth with fibers of all different shades of the hue. Every gift I"ve knit in it has been enthusiastically received.

        I've used this yarn for both socks/slippers and arm warmers. It knits up quickly, has a nice feel, and is very warm. I love the selection of colors as well.

        Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light:

        My husband LOVES alpaca and requested a hat made specifically from alpaca. I was worried that it would be "itchy" but this is soft and I enjoy knitting it. It will be worth the extra care for him to have a hat which is warm and soft that he really loves.

              Comments about Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light:

              I love alpaca and have used this yarn in a heavier weight so am confident I'll love it in this weight just as much. Color is a little darker than the online photo - more of a dark mulberry. Very rich and soft. Will make a great cowl.
