A gorgeous and luxurious alpaca yarn, comparable to many cashmere yarns, with better pricing of course! Thick, soft, and knits up super fast, with a great array of colors.

I fell immediately in love with Misti's chunky yarn the second I saw it in my local yarn shop and was head over heels for it the moment I had it in my hands and felt how soft and plush it was. It knits up beautifully on size 11 needles into a warm, snuggly fabric that's perfect for hats and scarves and the colors are beautiful. My personal favorite is the pale blue and heather grey combo.

This yarn is just yummy! It feels amazing and is so soft that I just want to cuddle up with it and make every garment out of it. Highly recommend trying it. It's worth the price.

Love, love, love this yarn. I work in an LYS and it absolutely sells itself. HOWEVER - like much alpaca it stretches. A lot. Knit on smaller needles and expect the garment to grow. It is also extremly warm. Great for standing still outside on subzero weather - stifling for walking at a swift New York City pace, FYI.

I'm so glad that Baby Alpaca is hypoallergenic! I'ma allergic to wool, and use this yarn to make my mittens, hats and scarves. With regard to alpaca's tendency to grow, it's well managed if you use another fiber as a "run along" (like a nylon sock yarn), or when making a colorwork pattern use a similar weight silk or cotton.
