      This yarn is wonderful to combine with a solid color fine yarn to create a really wild color combo and give a little more body to the final result. Used alone I think it is best crocheted with a D hook in a lacy pattern. KNitting it alone requires great patience, which I don't have. For the extra yarn I have used crochet cotton in a color in the hand painted yarn and I have used other alpaca solids to give the softest and prettiest fabric ever. I would only knit it with another yarn.

      Colors are beautiful and the finished results are stunning. I would use bamboo/wood needles or crochet hooks as this yarn is slippery.

            Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint Discontinued Colors:

            I have used the silky alpaca lace in solid colors and enjoyed it very much. I like to knit lace. I recently purchased some of the "paint" colors for scarves. Needle size can vary depending on how open you like lace. I wet block my pieces. Lace really does need to be blocked to show it off properly.

              Comments about Classic Elite Yarns Silky Alpaca Lace Hand Paint Discontinued Colors:

              I bought this yarn to knit a shawl but decided to make a jumper instead. The alpaca/silk mix makes a not-too-hot garment which is good to wear in a tropical climate. I've now bought two lots of Silky Alpaca Lace and I'm sure to be buying more.

                      I used this yarn with larger circular needles to make a light-weight airy wrap. Great color changes & soft on the hands.

                                  I use the yarn for a shawl. Soft to touch and easily to crochet. Only complaint is it is very easily to tangle together.
