Buttercream™ Collection Alpaca Solids Yarn is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Shedding stops I read the other reviews and agree that the yarn sheds when working with it. I made two sets of boot cuffs with the cream colorway. I was afraid my friends would never wear them, so I washed the cuffs to see if the shedding discontinued. Good news: yes the shedding decreased. After two washes, there is no perceptible shed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Yarn I bought this yarn last weekend and made a shawl and a hat. I'm surprised by the other reviews. Yes, it does shed. But any alpaca I have ever worked with does. This yarn is ridiculously soft and at this price cannot be beat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful hand and a dream to work with I picked up several colors of this luxurious blend to work up several hats. It is so easy to work with and has a soft texture that I love. Stitches are well defined for a super bulky blend and I had no issues with my wool allergies both crocheting and wearing this blend. It is my new fave to work with...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insanely soft & very warm I bought two skeins of this and knit a fluffly Outlander inspired shawl with it. It came out on the small side but will work well for the petite recipient it is intended for. The yarn is so incredibly soft and very warm, I really was impressed with that. However, the shedding .. oh my word the shedding. Every time I'd take a break from knitting it my husband would look at me and ask "when did we get a cat??" I've washed the shawl twice now to see if that takes care of the shedding and all I can say (it hasn't been worn yet) is that the hairs are EVERYWHERE coming out of the wash. I MIGHT buy this yarn again, I simply don't know, maybe if it is on a good sale. The color is great, I love the way it knitted up, it is so soft & warm .... but I'm just holding on to a hope that the shedding will eventually cease.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Sheds like a dog in the summer I bought 7 skeins of this beautiful yarn to make a blanket for a gift. I was a short way into the project when I realized there was no way I could finish. I was expecting a certain amount of shedding, but this is ridiculous. I had as much of the hair on me as was in the blanket I was making. It is very disappointing, as it is so soft and the colors are gorgeous. Unfortunately this will be a loss for me, as I cannot return many of the skeins. I'm not even sure what to do with the rest of this yarn. I would not recommend this yarn for any project. I really wish I had read the reviews prior to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super soft and warm I am extremely happy with this yarn as it is very easy to work with and a perfect weight for the winter months. I made a lapghan using a large size crochet hook and my project worked up really fast. As far as the shedding goes, I have a really good lint brush if I need it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprised Six months ago made granny square stitch ponchos for me but friend saw it on the mannequin, tried it on, loved it and took it home. I made me a granny square ruana, washed blocked, mixed with other Big Twist fibers for textures, blocked/washed, looking good, feels soft, warm. Knew alpaca was very warm in any weight so used moderately

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Alpaca sheds I have been making a scarf now for a week or so. In the cream colorway. With the fiber content being 80% ACRYLIC and 20% ALPACA. YOU WOULD THINK THE FIBER WOULD HAVE BEEN SPUN ENOUGH TO ELIMINATE SHEDDING. I make more high end items to idea if ANYONE will want this soft scarf .. Won't be buying anymore.
