A great blend when one needs a lace weight yarn for weaving. There is plenty of Merino or Alpaca lace yarn, however Merino itself in lace weight is usually to weak to serve as a warp, while in this yarn Merino is fortified with Alpaca, and what's even better- here one gets Merino blended with Suri Alpaca - something that is seldom found but very desirable, because some Alpaca yarns come in not quite such a delicate hand as Merino. So, in this case it is truly a win-win situation, and so much more that I could use a discount offered by PF to get myself this particular yarn and in a colour that I wanted, even though only 2 balls were left. Glad nevertheless!
The "Patina" color was a bit lighter than my monitor displayed, but still a pleasant color. Was a pleasure to knit up; although it's laceweight, the yarn is evenly plied and there were no knots in the single skein I ordered.
Quick shipping and a great deal on this wonderful yarn
