1) I usually knit with merino or wool blends so knitting with such a unique combination of fibers was quite an experience for me. The yarn has a lovely sheen to it, a smooth texture and the alpaca gives it a lovely bloom. I can't imagine how amazing a sweater would be in this yarn. Andrea, of Blueberry Hill Crafting, sweater made a Clarke Pullover with this yarn. It must feel so luxurious to wear. I would totally recommend this yarn and I am interested to try knitting with other yarn from Camellia Fibre Company. Their yarn seems very unique.
2) This pattern was easily memorized and I am so pleased with how the mitts turned out. Since they are knit in a DK weight this pattern would be perfect for a quick gift.
3) As mentioned in a previous post this yarn was given to me by Blueberry Hill Crafting. She posted a picture of it on Instagram and offered it to the first person who commented. It was my lucky day. Thank you Andrea!
