The size of the needles/crochet and gauge really depend on the pattern. We have projects that use size US 00 all the way to size US 7, the size most common is US 5 or 3.75mm.
We recommend washing your knitwear hand in lukewarm water. Dry flat and under no circumstances should you dry it on any heat source.
It will naturally become softer and fluffier with each wash.
I was intrigued when I learnt of this yarn. I decided to lash out and treat myself to see what the fuss was all about. Yes it is expensive and understandably so once you know more about its origins and production. I am not a fantastic knitter by any means so found a simple lace scarf pattern, i did practice with a cheap yarn till i got the pattern in my head. The Vicuña yarn is ethereal to knit with and not until you knit it up can you appreciate the softness that you do not feel when you first feel the skein and you can make a beautiful piece from1 or two skeins . I am saving to buy some more since i have found a couple more patterns which will look and feel stunning with this yarn.
