Overall Baby Alpaca Grande Rating: 5 out of 5 stars (5.0 based on 6 reviews)

Looks great in crocodile stitch crochet 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I got the undyed one and its ecru color looks plain in the hank, but when you put it against your skin, it looks incredibly classy. I made a crocodile stitch neck warmer, and something about the yarn made it quite naturally form perfect, round scallops for the scales even before blocking. It's probably the nicest, highest quality wearable item I've ever made, and it's definitely the yarn, not me!

Unbearably soft!!! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I kept having to stop and rub my in-progress capelet against my cheek to feel how soft it was. Highly recommended for making a project you'll get to feel, like a scarf or shawl. Frogs easily, considering how loosely plied it is. I'm going to buy more colors and make shawls/capelets to go with, like, ALL my clothes, that's how nice it feels.

Wonderful 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I purchased this yarn at a LYS while far from home one day. I fell in love at first touch. I am allergic to wool, and have never made a garment for me. I saw the shrug pattern from Plymouth and the rest is history. It is working up well, feels great (no itchy) and is a joy to work with. I had my first joining of skeins and it was so easy and it is not at all perceptible. I will make more things with this yarn, it is just a joy and well worth every penny.
