This is just about the softest alpaca yarn I’ve worked with. The only one that’s come close is the Austermann Alpaca Silk which is aran/worsted weight.
Jacqui Harding used this yarn to make her Athena Notebook Cover, pattern available soon, but you will find it in Knit Now Issue 18 (Feb 2013).
Jacqui says “The Lanas Stop Alpaca is probably the nicest alpaca yarn I have ever used – EVER! Softer than most and not sheddy. Delicious. I will be buying some from you – when I have time to knit for me! Everybody should try it :)”
