Very soft and easy to work with, but sheds horribly. I made a throw for my son and he wakes up covered in purple fuzz every day. I tried washing and drying it, but it didn't make a difference. He still loves the blanket though.

This yarn is really soft and squishy, and works up quickly on large needles. My only complaint is that it sheds pretty badly while knitting it. I imagine it's because it's wound so loosely, but it looks there are a lot of 2-4" hairs that fall from it while knitting. I would advise not wearing any dark clothing while working with it. At least not with the Bare yarn. My black sweatshirt looks like a white dog rolled all over it. :) I made the Electric Alpaca Cowl with it, and have it in the dryer on Air only setting to see if it will take the loose hairs off and help with the shedding.

Ok, I should not have given other yarns before using this one. This yarn is one of the most delightful experiences I've ever had! SO soft to the touch, you can have it on a more tight look if you preserve the spun look or you can flatten it and have a more rustic look to your work, in which case you should go up a lot on needle size. Being a true superbulky it knits so quickly (The Big Cozy hat was 2+ hours to create), but be prepared to some shedding (but not much) while working it up. The finished product does not shed. It looks lovely and feels cozy to the skin, so soft and warm. I am excited to see how it felts, as this is my plan to my hat for avoiding lining it under.

To Nancy,it isn't itchy at all for me. I have knitted many scarves and hats with this yarn and came out nice. Yes, this is shed a lot but became better after blocking.

Most of the flying hairs is due to the alpaca. I find that I always have hairs up my nose when using any type of alpaca. Anyone know if this yarn could be felted, at least a little, to keep it together?
