This is one of my favourite yarns to knit with. I have made 2 garments in it so far and another two are in the pipeline. It has a fabulous texture so soft and smooth and it hangs and knits well and knits up brillaintly in all patterns. I have used the colours Spice and creeper so far. it also keeps it's shape

With Alpaca and chunky weight, this is a proper winter yarn. When I was recommended to use this yarn at a shop, I was not sure about it as it contains synthetic fiber, but the knitted fabric is gorgeous and I was very impressed and converted. I get many compliments about the finished garment. In simple stocking stitch it shows wonderful drapery and keeps the original shape very well. The multi-colour construction makes it tweedy fabric. It is so soft and even my ultra sensitive skin is comfortable with it. It is a shame it was discontinued.
