Malabrigo - Worsted Merino
so soft 5 out of 5 stars
I made the 1898 hat with this yarn for my daughter in law. This is the 7th hat I have made using this yarn and it is so soft to work with. Everyone who receives this hat comments on the softness. I made the hat with this yarn for family members for Christmas. Even those who never wear hats were glad to have them during this extra cold winter and loved the softness of this yarn. My favorite to work with.

Berroco - Ultra Alpaca
knits nicely 4 out of 5 stars
I wasn't as happy with this yarn as I thought I would be. I was thinking the term Ultra Alpaca meant that the yarn would be soft. I should have read the type of yarn more closely and I would have seen it also has Peruvian wool. I made a 1898 hat with this yarn and my husband said it is too scratchy. He prefers the hat made with malabrigo merino wool which is much, much softer than the Ultra Alpaca yarn. This yarn does knit the project nicely, though with good stitch definition.
