Fluffy & Warm

This is a go to yarn if you are looking for warmth! This yarn has a little bit of loft from the alpaca. I normally use a # 1 needle for socks but had to move up to a 2 for this yarn. It works up beautifully. It takes a little bit more care in working as the alpaca fibers can get tangled a bit, so take care working a stitch. I am using the plum and it is deep and rich. This pair of socks should be so cozy for our Wisconsin winters. The price can't be beat. A pair of socks for under $10.00 is a bargain. You can't lose with this yarn and I would purchase it again.

Beautiful softly rustic fingering wool

The color I ordered was spot on with how it was depicted on my computer screen and is fully saturated in person. Its not the softest alpaca fingering yarn I've purchased but has a very pleasant, tiny bit of grippiness while knitting. I haven't washed the garment yet but I think this is going to be a yarn that blooms beautifully and evens out my stitches once washed. Would definitely buy this again.
