Plymouth Yarn, Baby Alpaca Brush [Aug. 14th, 2006|06:26 pm]
Yarn Critiques


[mood |accomplished]

Brand of Yarn: Plymouth Yarn, Baby Alpaca Brush
Yarn Content: 80% Baby Alpaca/20% Acrylic
Recommended Hook/Needle Size: I-hook
Hook/Needle Size Used: I-hook
Craft: Crochet
Experience at Craft: Learned when I was six, on and off until I was 21, almost constant practice for the last two years [I'm 23].
Pros: The yarn is slightly fuzzy but still very easy to work with. Warm. Works up very prettily. Comes in easy to handle skeins.
Cons: Frogging was a bit difficult, as the fuzziness of the yarn caused tangles, and the yarn is a touch scratchy.
Overall impression: I very much liked the yarn overall. It was, with the exception of a few tangles, very easy to work with, and it built up into a nice project. It seems quite durable and still lightweight.

just a suggestion, for the "experience at craft" area you might want to put actual years down as opposed to "since I was 21"-- without knowing how old you are, it gives us no frame of reference to how much experience that acutally is. It would make a big difference in terms of experience if you're 22 vs. 52. :)

It's an excellent suggestion.

I'm so glad! I was really surprised that no one else had taken the idea yet.
