I bought this yarn from our local yarn store, a gorgeous hand dyed teal alpaca with a bit of stellina for shiny bits. The amazing softness made me want to make something to go around my neck. Since alpaca is super drapey, I decided to knit it with smaller needles. I started with 8s, changed to 7s, then finished with 6s. It’s very snug and warm and will be perfect for chilly outings.
