I went a little mad at the Alpaca Select stall (incidentally, that link has an automatic video, and it’s LOUD!) at last year’s Knitting & Stitching Show. That’s 100% alpaca, in a mixture of DK and 4-ply as far as I can tell (the weight is not marked on the band), and it feels gorgeous. So gorgeous, in fact, that I may one day use it to knit something with.
I bought it with fair-isle in mind, but then I started worrying that I know far less about fair-isle than I ought to (thank you, superego), and shouldn’t “waste” this beautiful yarn on a beginner project. Should instead, presumably, use yarn I don’t love to make something ugly, because it will build character. Yeah. (No.)
