I'm in love with these. I don't ever want to make them again. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. They're made with Stockbridge by Webs which is close to Berroco Ultra Alpaca and I'll sometimes use them interchangeably since they're the same weight and blend, and sometimes I can't find the colors I want in Berroco, or I don't want a whole skein. Berroco only comes in 100g skeins, while Stockbridge is half that, so I don't have to buy as much if it's colors I probably won't use as much. It's a little pillier than the Berroco, and not quite as soft, but still a very nice yarn that I prefer over almost any 100% wool. Yup.... love these. Still hate embroidery.
