Overall Alpaca Silk Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (4.8 based on 45 reviews)

Lovely Yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
My earlier review on the yarn's smoothness holds up. I have wound and used 7 out of 9 purchased skeins and so far there was only one joining knot and a tiny one within the strand. As I used my Passap and stockinette stitch, I discovered the latter much too late. Thankfully it settled on the wrong side of a large wrap. Am currently hand-knitting a braid pattern to create a decorative edge and find it extremely pleasant to work with. Color Sand Dune is very neutral, wonderful with the silk sheen. Wishing for more time to make something in one of the other beautiful colors.

Lovely Yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I have only wound one skein so far for my test swatches and found it to be perfectly smooth. For stockinette stitch the smallest needles provide the best result with a subtle sheen. I did a small swatch on my Passap and loved it the most.

Never Disappoints 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
This is my fourth or sixth? project with this yarn. For me, it knits up happily at a fingering to sport gauge. It is just lovely stuff.

Beautiful color and wonderful texture 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I bought this yarn to make a hat for my daughter-in-law as a Christmas gift. When my son saw the hat and the beautiful texture of the yarn he asked for a hat for himself. The colors are wonderful and the yarn is soft and easy to knit. I'm planning to buy more of it for future projects.
