I have knit several sweaters using the Berroco Ultra Alpaca and I love it. Super soft, easy to knit, good stitch definition, with a lovely halo. For the price, I find myself coming back to it time and again and never disappointed.
this is my favofrite yarn easy to knit with and soft
beaitiful colour I am knitting for my gfrandchildren warm and easy to knit with , the colours in are beautiful and even
This yarn is great to work with. Soft, nice to work with as a worsted weight and has nice drape for sweaters, hats, Cowls, etc. The alpaca mixture is warm and suitable for winter garments and accessories.
The headline says it. So soft in your fingers, knitting with it actually makes you feel good. Would be great for anything that needs to be soft and warm. I actually used 3.5mm needles for a tight knit, and it looks great.
This was another quick project, as I usually knit socks it was nice to use a larger needle. This yarn had excellent stitch definition for cables and even though I made a mistake it was easy to take back and pick up the stitches to correct the problem. This would be excellent for a cable sweater so that may be next.
