I took advantage of this same sale at Michaels, I got the Bernat Alpaca, it is extremely soft. I don't think I would ever use it again though because it sheds so bad. I have used other yarns that shed before but this is worse. Also it is 2 ply and basically comes apart as soon as you start knitting with it. I am going to finish the hat and scarf I am making with it but mostly because I bought 5 skeins of it!!
