NEW Ultra Alpaca Light

Berroco Ultra Alpaca Light
This yarn is one of my all time favourites. I feel that hyperbole and exclamation marks would diminish my sincerity, I really adore it. It looks normal, but it’s not, when it’s knit up it has a remarkable, stretchy quality and an incredible memory. It also doesn’t drape like most other alpacas, it stands up and holds it’s shape like a brand new pair of boobs. I like it for accessories, but swear by it for sweaters – especially anything fitted or with little or no ease. The texture is slightly fuzzy, it doesn’t pill as much as other yarns, and when it does it isn’t extremely noticeable and it’s really easy to remove. All of the above makes for a very wearable garment, which I like if I’m putting the time & energy into making one by hand. I made a turtleneck with it last winter, wore the hell out of it, and I’ve been planning on making a Wulfenite with it this fall/winter.
