I love the colors of this yarn and bought many hanks to knit On the Spice Market by Melanie Berg. The yarn came and it is soft and the colors are just right. I was really impressed by the selection of colors. However, as the colors are knit with a white (Sophia) base, I decided to give them a rinse before I started knitting. I am so glad that I did. I had 6 colors and I think that they all bled horribly. I can't imagine what my project would look like if I had not rinsed them. I am still not confident that the dye is set, so I am going to do a citric acid rinse before I begin. I think that this yarn is nice and the color selection is great and the price is very reasonable, but be warned that the yarn needs treating if you are going to mix colors!

Downtown Abbey? Maybe. But hellloooo, JANE AUSTEN! Love this yarn and the color names are amazing!

One of my favourite yarns from KnitPicks! I first got this as part of a Sunset Shawl kit in a bare cream colour, and I haven't stopped knitting with it since! It is absolutely the best thing for soft light shawls and barely there cardigans against the skin. 100% superfine alpaca feels glorious and luxurious.

So very soft and wonderfully light, this yarn has rich beautiful depth of color and is such a steal! Delightful to work with, feather soft and light once it's knit, this stuff is good for laces and sturdier knits as well. The names remind me of Jane Austen characters, which is an amusing little kick. The pictures available do fairly good accuracy/justice to the in-person colors too, which is so very helpful!

I was very excited when Alpaca Cloud became available in fingering weight as I love the lace weight version. Sadly, I do not find this yarn to be the same quality as its lighter sibling. The colors are lovely, but the fiber sheds A LOT. Instead of being lacy, my project is incredibly hairy. As it's a gift, this is unsuitable for my purposes.

This yarn is absolutely lovely to the touch...BUT the colors are not at all accurate. The pictures shown on the website are so much darker than the actual colors. I ordered the Daisy and the Emma. Emma is a bit darker but still very much like the image. I'm pleased with it. But the Daisy is completely different. I thought they sent me the wrong color. It's very dark gold. No yellowy mustard tones here. Disappointed. It would be an excellent yarn if they could just get the images to match the actual yarn so it wouldn't be a gamble to buy.

I received my Alpaca Cloud (Elizabeth) as a gift. It is so soft and squishy. I can't wait to use it for something special. The quality and color is beautiful.

Can't speak to quality but looks enticing. So many colors, really need to have a color card available to distinguish between them! Have found Andean Treasure to be a lovely yarn, but really more a DK weight than a sport weight; am hoping this one handles a little heavier than fingering.

I haven't purchased this yarn yet, but if you are a Downton Abbey fan, this yarn is for you. The names of these yarns is awesome!!!! Thanks Knit Picks for making this yarn line fun. Now I have to find a project so I can purchase this yarn.

I am so incredibly excited about this. I adore the lace yarn(I bought like 200 grams of it to make a shawl that Im in love with) and I've been wanting this in a fingering weight since the lace weight arrived at my door. I cannot wait to finish the socks i'm going to make out of this.

I love Andean treasure so I'm sure I'll love these too. Love all the extra colors. Also I think these are named after Downton Abbey characters? Mosely and Bates?
