Alpaca yarn, anyone?

So I was planning to make a scarf out of this. But it's 100% Alpaca, and with the wool allergy I just don't think I can pull it off, I need to deal with at least a blend. I went through a little bit of a denial period, you see. :-)

This stuff is great. Here's a pic of the label. It's a fingering/DK weight, with LOTS of yardage.

And it is SO soft. I mean, baby soft. And believe it or not, it came off the animal in JANUARY, and was spun, and it is here now. In its natural color.

This stuff is awesome. I hate to get rid of it, but I need to do some stash busting and get some stuff I can use. I paid $28 for it, but Ill send it to you for $25 ppd. Email me at swallerATgmail.com if your interested - this stuff would be great for just about anything, and there is enough yardage you could make a number of things out of it.

Alpaca is hypo-allergenic, and does not cause the same allergic reaction that wool does. It looks like a lovely scarf, don't be afraid of it!
