What a wondrously soft yarn from Debbie Bliss! Crafted of 80% Peruvian baby alpaca and 20% silk, "Alpaca Silk" has the lovely softness and light fuzziness of traditional alpaca luxuriously enhanced by the subtle sheen and velvety feel of silk. Ideal for pullovers, cardigans, jackets, coats, tops, and winter wear accessories, cuddly soft outfits made of "Alpaca Silk" by Debbie Bliss will be the absolute favorites of both children and adults alike.
Please Note: The name of this Debbie Bliss yarn is in the process of being changed to "Alpaca Silk Aran." It is also referred to as "Baby Alpaca Silk."

Very very soft but fuzzes up too much for my liking. Drapey yarn that just seemed to look so 'worn' after very few wearings. Was making the Lara cardigan, but frogged due to the above.

This is a beautiful yarn and oh-so-soft! However, it is pretty unforgiving if you have to pull out. It does fuzz and splits easily. I am making the cabled collar jacket in book #2.

This is such a beutiful yarn, it's very hard to resist buying it! I wish I could buy enough to make a sweater but its very pricey. I think it's worth it if you wear a lot of sweaters!

Pros: Yummy to work with; *very* strong, so when frogging, does not fall apart
Cons: *Rewind* your skein. If not, you will be hating life. I am making the "James" sweater (in a diff. color combo) from "Noro Knits, Jane Ellison" and am very happy.
