I have chosen this yarn for a hat and combined it with darkerer shade of grey. I used two threads to make it thicker. The colors blended together really well creating a beautiful grey color in between these two shades. I learned that this type of alpaca wool works better for accessories than bigger knitting projects such as cardigan for example. The final product is soft and heavy meaning it stretches and looks best in items like shawls, long scarves, etc. I bought enough for a cardigan, but will combine it with regular wool so it keeps a better shape. I am very satisfied with this yarn.
