Alpaca Cloud Lace Yarn

$6.79 50g / hank

The downy softness of the hollow core alpaca fiber makes it amazingly warm, but light as a feather, and therefore perfect for lace. The alpaca packs a lot of punch, as far as heat retention goes, for its size and weight, making it the perfect fiber for the functionality of lace - lightweight warmth. Baby alpaca is one of the softest and finest classifications of alpaca, and you will love the luxurious feel of this yarn against your skin. These subtle heathered colors are like mists draped over your shoulders, offering classically understated elegance and sure to compliment several outfits in your wardrobe.

“In Alpaca Cloud, you have what feels like a medium-range baby alpaca in a delicate and extremely affordable laceweight yarn. The two component strands have been plied together at a relaxed angle, lending a smooth fluidity to the yarn. But once washed, a modest, blurry bloom appears over the surface of your knitted fabric for a soft, cozy effect.” Interweave Knits, Winter 2007

This yarn is really nice, soft alpaca. It feels like butter with a very soft halo. This is fine lace,not gossamer, but thinner than the gloss or shadow lace options here. I love the 2 colors I picked: "Midnight" and "Oyster Heather." They are both just beautiful. I ordered one of each,to make sure I liked them, and I do, so I'm back to order one more of each color so I have enough for a full project in each color. Nice price, well below the cost of traditional lace yarns.

Love this yarn. Made lace shawl and long cardigan. Have lots of plans with the yarn, so please do not discontinue it for the next hundred years.

I LOVE this yarn. The photo's don't do the colors justice at all. Soft, and Gorgeous. I agree with everyone else...Please add more colors. I would love the turquoise, and some lovely earth/autumn colors. would be really great to have a worsted version of this with a great array of colors. :-D

I love this yarn. The colors that I have ordered thus far are all amazing. It's slightly variegated, which adds a depth and dimension to the color that is gorgeous. I used it to make the Juliet cardigan, and got so used to using it that now I can't stop, and keep looking for new lace-weight projects just to have an excuse to continue knitting with Alpaca Cloud. I agree with the other reviewers: Please add, do not subtract, color choices in the future if at all possible!!

This is one of my all-time favorite yarns, buttery soft and amazingly fine quality. Inspired by some of Marianne Isager's designs, I often use two or three strands together to create a tweed in fingering (2) or DK (3) weight, with wonderful results. Especially in the midnight colorway, this is one yarn that I stockpile because I always know that I will use it.

I love this yarn. I use it primarily to knit things for the dolls I collect, because it's the perfect scale. I just wish knitpicks would ADD more colors instead of take them away.
