I was stunned to see that this yarn transmits light just like a glaze in oil painting or a stained glass window. The fibers are transluscent. Looking at the yarn on an Addi needle silver color under a strong light, you see the light coming right through it. If you love color, this is your new favorite yarn. Well, I'm a painter, so excuse me for getting carried away. Also, so soft, lovely to handle, and develops a nice texture as the knitted fabric grows. I love it.
Just to hold Blue Sky Alpacas, 100% Alpaca Sportweight Yarn in your hands is a joy. It is soft and subtle which made me question whether I would get nice and tight stitches but after knitting a pair of socks for my daughter, my fears were laid to rest. The stitches were nicely formed and created a soft and inviting pair of bed socks, perfect for rainy days or those inevitable sick days. The dark Molasses color was perfect with a soft pink simply embroidered at the top giving a feminism touch. Working the yarn was such a delight, I purchased an additional few hanks to make me a pair of socks and with my painful neuropathy, I can only imagine how comfortable these socks will be on my feet!
