This stuff is fabulous! It feels sooo yum. I'm one of those who alpaca makes itch. But this stuff, it has a nice subtle halo, single ply and soft, soft, soft. For me it's a Malabrigo competitor in terms of how it feels when it's running over my fingers while knitting and also when worked up. But, quite nicely, it's at a thinner weight. It says worsted, but it's 137 meters for 50 grams and I get 21 sts to 4" on size 6.

I recommend trying some of this if you can.

I am knitting the anthrapologie Reversible Caplette (yes I KNOW i cannot spell for beans) in this yarn
my Eldest daughter refuses to wear anything in a heavier weight yarn let alone anything Bulky
Nor will she wear anyting that itches even a little bit
so this is the only thing i found that would still look classy when done

I also Crochetted some Butineers (remember the previous comment about Spelling?) with a Tighter Green yarn for the stem, and then the Frogtree Red for the flower
they were YUMMY
