    Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Aire

    Plymouth Baby Alpaca Aire is true to its name! This soft chainette yarn is super airy and lofty-- it's a great worsted weight, and when knit with a  bigger size needle, the looped fibers puff up to create the fluffiest fabric. Baby Alpaca Aire is springy to knit; the chainette construction gives the alpaca more elasticity, so large projects won't stretch out. All that, plus glorious color in solids and heathers, and the sumptuous feel of 100% alpaca! Made in Peru

          Comments about Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Aire:

          I knitted three strands together for a tunic vest with a honeycomb pattern. It was incredibly light and soft and an absolute pleasure to knit. The finished product is my favorite knitted piece--and I have been knitting for 58 years!

                  I needed a bulky but non itchy yarn to combine with others for a collar and cuffs of a coat. This is great.

                    Comments about Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Aire:

                    I made a scarf (Faina's scarf, a diamond-lace pattern designed for sport weight) and the yarn worked very well. I used the color "Evergreen", which is lovely, but when blocking, the color ran to the extent that the water was opaque through 4 rinses. The color appears the same, not faded (although it could over the years). For that reason, I wouldn't recommend using this for a two-row scarf, and if used next to the skin, the color might stain a bra. It might not, though, and is wonderful next to the skin. It made a great scarf that will double as a shawl. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this yarn again for other projects, and will probably go out of my way to find a pattern to use this again. I prefer wood straight needles to knit alpaca, as it's so slick that it's easy to drop stitches with other types (aluminum or my beloved Bates Quicksilver circulars).

                      I am makeing a tunic for my daughter. This is a soft and warm yarn. It makes a lovely garment . I am a little concerned about the yarns ability to hold shape in the finished garment. Time will tell
                      I really loved working with this yarn!

                        Comments about Plymouth Yarn Baby Alpaca Aire:

                        I had an odd ball in my stash that I started to use as a test for a project I was planning to knit and I liked the results so much I perchased another ball to complete the shawl. A friend saw mine and liked it so much that I got 2 balls to knit the pattern for her. Another friend saw it this weekend and I think she may be getting some to knit her own. It was nowhere close to the yarn that was called for but with larger needles it knit up so beautifully it has become one of the best things I've knit.

                        This Yarn is a dream to work with! So incredibly soft! No shedding. Strong construction with the braid yet, so airy light. A true luxury. You will not be disappointed. The large yardage is a steal. I will be buying this again a again.
