Hi folks, Has anyone else read the Clara Parkes article titled " Discovering Alpaca" in the latest (Winter '07) Interweave Knits Magazine?
In the article (pg. 14) she mentions: " ... any kind of ribbing in pure alpaca will be decorative only- the yarn won't reliably keep your fabric snug."
I just finished knitting three pairs of fingerless gloves in alpaca using 1X1 ribbing for the cuff. Did I just waste my time? Has anyone else knit gloves or mitts with 100 % alpaca with some ribbing and worn them? Has the ribbing stretched out over time? Gee whiz, I hope Ms. Parkes is wrong about ribbing with alpaca.
