Alpaca sock yarn

Yarn arrived promptly feels really soft have yet to complete the socks but it appears to be knitting up fine

So soft...

The alpaca sock yarn is so soft and warm that I had to buy some more for another pair of socks. It's lovely to knit with, and with a gentle hand wash the socks are soft and keep their shape. I would definitely recommend it. It's beautiful.

Hi Hazel, thank you for your lovely review, and for your advice about handwashing. It is funny how we all dread the handwash, but if we use lovely wool liquid soap that does not need rinsing it is actually quite therapeutic, don't you think?!

Gorgeous by name and gorgeous in fact

Communication with the company was good as I had a question before I ordered my yarn. The yarn arrived by the date promised and is truly as soft and beautiful as I had anticipated. Have not wound up the hanks yet (although I keep admiring them and touching them) as I have 4 other projects on the go, but am already thinking about how I might make use of further purchases from this company. Thank you.

FOUR other projects!!! Wow, I don't know how you do it. Margaretta, thank you so much for sharing your experience of Gorgeous. We really appreciate it, and you make a difference to us.xxx

Blown away by the quality and softness of the yarn

I received my parcel a few days ago and opened it straight away. The order was correct and complete. I was blown away by the quality and softness of the yarn. No complaints from me, just another order in the future.
I would like to know if you do any other colours in the alpaca yarn as I would like some different colours to choose from. I am also allergic to merino wool which rules out the Manos range.
Many thanks again for the last order, it has all been wound and the blue and silver is well on its way to being a sock!
