Hi, I've heard lots of raves about the Ultra Alpaca yarn so I recently ordered 2 skeins online. I started knitting and maybe it's the color I chose (Salt & Pepper - grey with speckles of whites) or maybe it's just the 'halo' effect of alpaca, my twin ribbing pattern is not showing very well. The yarn is very soft against the skin though.
FYI, I am attaching a pic: I put it alongside with the Cascade 220 green scarf I am knitting. Is it a big contrast? Or am I just being paranoid?
Has anyone used this yarn? I love the feel of this yarn and the price is good too. I'm thinking if it was only because of the fact that it is kinda heathered color then next time I will order solid colors. Any response from those who have used this yarn or have used other alpaca yarns is appreciated. Here is the link to the info on the yarn in case someone might not have heard of it: http://www.berroco.com/shade_cards/ultra_alpaca_sh.html
Thanks for all the comments! I am thinking about ribbing it off when it's still early...and maybe trying another pattern (cables maybe), and also switching to a smaller needle size (I'm using size 7) to help the stitch definition???
I just bought this yarn in a chocaletly brown to make a sweater so I am interested in everyone's responses too - swatching now and noticed the halo as well, so trying to choose my stitch pattern with that in mind....
