Reynolds Blizzard yarn? It's alpaca and acrylic. I am looking at getting it from Webs to make a sweater vest for my fil for Christmas. He lives in central LA (the state not the city) so I am looking for something that will knit up somewhat light.

Thanks for the help!

I haven't used it, but if you are looking for something light.. Alpaca while lightweight is VERY warm. 8-10x's warmer than wool.

Blizzard is so NOT light...I made a scarf out of it, and it's super warm. It's also pretty hairy and likes to shed on everything.

If it wasn't for the fact that it's pink, pink, pink, I'd probably get rid of the scarf. hehe.
