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:

        I used this yarn to knit a pair of fingerless mitts. It knitted up quickly. I had a frog a few times and the yarn held up after being knit with several times. The color was true to what I saw on the site. I only wish I would have picked a slightly lighter color, the fuzziness of it didn't make my special stitch design stand out as much as I would have liked.

          I'm making a pair of fingerless gloves for my niece and this yarn is perfect. It's soft yet durable. Just the right weight. And the color is gorgeous. I love doing business with "Webs."

            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.

              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.
