Overall Silky Alpaca Lace Rating: 4.9 out of 5 stars (4.9 based on 25 reviews)

Wedding fantasy 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
My boss is getting married and, in her 40's, want a candidate for the white cream puff dress. I volunteered to knit her one. We settled on a lace coat featured in a recent Vogue Knitting. Having considered several other and more expensive yarns, I returned to the original as shown in the magazine. And Jimmy Beans had the color &quantity we needed! This is a lovely yarn to hand with good definition for lace work. I would highly recommend it.

Lovely Lace Yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I bought this yarn to make a garter for my wedding. The yarn is so soft, but unlike other soft yarns, it is not splitty. The yarn is very strong, which is rare for this weight, and yet still so delicate. Perfect for a multitude of projects.

Made a fabulous shawl 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I used the Classic Elite Silky Alpaca to make a lace shawl for my mother-in-law for Christmas and it was great! I knitted in some beads, which helped add a bit of flair. After wet blocking, the piece was gorgeous. I was proud to give it as a gift and my MIL was very happy to receive it.
