This is lovely yarn! Please keep it! Soft, warm, and great colors! The only thing I would improve is the structure. It needs just a little more structure to hold up to wear.

So disappointed to see this yarn leaving!! It's such a pleasure to work with and such gorgeous finished products, the softest yarn I've ever used!!

I LOVE THIS YARN!!!! I really really wish you weren't discontinuing it (or will bring it back soon)!!

This yarn is very soft, and strong. I've made cowls and scarves that are next-to-skin-happy, and a shawl that is light as air and warm as toast. I'm now making a dress with a hood from a top down pattern in 'Literary Knits' and it is stunning! The halo blooms out when blocked, and of course it pills a bit, its fuzzy. I just pick them off by hand while watching race shows on TV with hubby, not a big deal. Pilling eventually stops. I've had no problems with splitting nor any 'problems' with tension or weakness in the yarn. There have been no knots in ten skeins so far. I've never found knots in skeins from any KnitPicks yarns, and I've tried most of the fiber types. Do remember to swatch until you get your gauge.

What this yarn is: deliciously soft, fluffy, and warm. I could sit and pet this stuff for ages! What this yarn is NOT: first of all, it's not worsted. Not even close. If you include the fuzzy halo in your thickness estimate, an argument MIGHT be made for a thin DK. If you don't count the halo, it's sportweight, no question. Considering how warm it is, you don't really need a thick fabric anyway...but don't buy this expecting a quick project to happen, and buy more yardage than you'd need fr I'm an actual worsted. It is also NOT tension-friendly. Expect breaks if you're not working it somewhat loosely. Another con is that you WILL end up wearing some of the halo after working with it. Honestly, a shorter halo that was more anchored to the yarn would've been nicer. I can see why some people love this yarn. If it had been more accurately described and I'd bought it for a project it was suited for, I probably would too...but I trusted the description, and got burned on my yarn choice as a result. Not cool.

This yarn is so soft and fluffy BUT it is not worsted weight. I bought this in 2 different colors to use for 2 specific patterns, a scarf and a sweater. I started with the scarf and, while it's looking beautiful, my gauge is off. Since it's a scarf and not a fitted garment, I'm ok with it, but I'm concerned now that it's not going to work for the sweater for which it was intended. Also, I just joined my third ball and it's even thinner than the previous 2; I just hope it's not noticeable once it's finished and blocked.

Knits up very nice, and really nice and soft, not itchy. But I'm very unhappy with it, it pills badly, as soon as I wore my sweater the first time it showed wear at the chest and side areas, cuffs,neck and hem quite badly

I have wanted to knit a simple stockinette stitch wrap for years but have had a very specific color pink in mind and wanted it to have a beautiful halo and to be the softest thing. My fiancé gifted me Reverie in Melon for Christmas this year and it is finally what I've been looking for!! It is knitting up beautifully on my rosewood needles! The ONLY problem is that I may never finish because I can't stop petting it!!

I really love this yarn, it is so soft and gentle on the skin. I've made two scarves with it and plan on making more.

Love the softness and sheen of this yarn. Just wish it came in more colors. Please make a deep rose or deep lavender. I would buy it in a heartbeat. I am currently making a large wrap/ throw in a simple feather and fan pattern. It is luscious, soft and beautiful and my kitties will want to steal it from me :-)

My daughter sent this to me for a Christmas present and I just love it! It is so soft, warm and a pleasure to knit up. My lacy scarf with scalloped edging is emazging and I am so looking forward to the Australian Winter when I can wear it and revel in its warmth and beauty!

Though I love the softness and alpaca fluffiness, the yarn is not truly a worsted weight, more like a light sport weight. I found that I need to use two strands together to get the gauge and fabric I was hoping for. I'm disappointed that now I'll need to buy several more balls to complete my project.

Simply decadent ! I ordered it in lavender and this color is just divine. I wish I ordered more colors while the sale was going on, but I was afraid that it might be difficult to work with such fuzzy fiber and to the contrary, I am in pure heaven knitting myself a scarf that has some cabling going on. I am a new knitter and occasionally I have to rip things back and needles to say, some fuzzy yarns just “do not cooperate” ; ). I had no problem frogging Reverie (actually couple of times *blush) and what is knitted so far is looking amazing and feeling like a luxurious lavender cloud in my hands. It does shed, but I suppose it is expected from such a fuzzy fiber. LOVE IT !

I was gifted this yarn in Regal and the moment I opened up the box, I couldn't stop squishing and petting it. I made a lace infinity scarf on US 10.5s and the fabric is light, but when wrapped twice it is so warm! Tinking back was a bit of a pain, it's a sticky yarn but not painful enough to not buy more! Love it!

This yarn has some pros and some cons. It's very soft and squishy without a doubt, great for those with allergies and sensitivities like me, and holy crap it is WARM. But because it's brushed it's terrible at frogging and looks even worse. I made a project about a year ago with this yarn and it looks pretty ratty already, again, because of the brushed effect. Things that are neither pros nor cons but important to know: -This is not a worsted weight yarn. It it definitely a DK yarn (an argument could be made that it's even a sport yarn). -The fabric it creates is quite drape-y so I wouldn't recommend it for any project that needs a lot of structure but it would make for a very cozy shawl! All in all because of the price and my wool sensitivity I would buy it again. But Knit Picks, please add more colors! (And consider making Andean Treasure in a worsted weight so there's a non-brushed option too!)

I love love love this yarn! Super soft and cuddle worthy! I am wondering where the sky blue and chocolate brown colors that are seen in the product picture went? Will they be available again sometime?

I love this yarn. It is so soft and had a nice halo / brushed feel to it. It's great for my baby bonnets I sell as photography props. I would really love to see this yarn in some warmer hues. Perhaps a cinnamon, amber, or yellow colors would be amazing to round out this color selection.

I love this yarn! It's like knitting with clouds, or furry kittens! I love how warm and soft it is for being so light. Very popular with my 1 and 3 year olds; they will steal balls of it to cuddle. Makes a great baby blanket for anyone willing to hand wash one.

Ok, I've tried this yarn for a few projects now and I absolutely love it! It's lovely to work with, and it feels great against the skin. Perfect for projects worn on the neck especially - even my sister, who is a bit sensitive to the scratchiness of wool, likes it! Though like another review said, it's a pain to rip out if you need to, so make a swatch or something before going all in for a big project!

Excellent Alpaca - It is a bit stretchy and very slippery if you are using nickel needles, but it knits up beautifully and it's unbelievably soft and light as air. Very warm. Extremely satisfying.

This is my absolute favourite yarn in the whole world to work with! It's amazingly soft, fluffy and gorgeous. This is my go-to yarn now for photo prop making.

I loved this beautiful, soft yarn. It was exquisite to work with, and my wrap using the black is elegant and "pet-able." Highly recommended. You will notice a halo around the yarn, and I wondered if it would shed, which it does very minimally. Gorgeous, and I'm buying more in the beautiful green this time.

A treat to work with, and even more of one to wear. Garments are oozy soft and cozy with just enough structure to keep them from being floppy. A fantastic value for what you get. Only thing keeping me from giving this a higher rating was that it was wound on the looser side, making it very easy to 'stab' the yarn. Also, if you need to rip out your piece and start over, hopefully its only after a few rounds/rows have been completed, since ripping out is next to impossible due to the fluffiness of the fabric. And there needs to be more colors!!!

Although this yarn is yummy soft to the touch and skin, It doesnot not knit up gauge specifications. I have used a size 5, 6, and 7 needle and find the yarn potentially very stretchy. I am thinking of using a fingering yarn as a yarn along to give it more substance. Hope I can find a viable add-on to give the yarn more firmness and not be as stretchy.

I really, Really love this yarn! It is soooo soft. I have one thing to ask however... Would you pretty please with sugar on top offer more colors??? Like a bunch? :-D

I made a baby photoshoot costume with this yarn and it feels amazing! I got it in melon which is a baby pink and looks exactly as on the photo. It's soft and a little fuzzy and knits fast and did I say it's superrrr soft? I also made a headband combining a strand of acrylic yarn + Reverie (leftovers) and it gave such a nice halo to the whole thing, I will definitely consider adding it to simple wool for example, in hats and cowls.

Beautiful, soft, feels good in the hand. Reminds me of Suri Dream which was a yarn offered several years ago. Like Suri Dream, if you have to rip back, this yarn is very difficult to see where you've been! I'm making a cabled cowl for a Christmas gift.

Cloud-soft Reverie transformed easily into a feather-light winter beret. (You may prefer wooden needles to the nickel-plated ones as Reverie slips so easily from needle to needle... or just off the needle.) Reverie is ideal for against-the-skin wear, delicate pieces that need to drape softly, and dressed-up lightweight warmth.
