I made my SIL a shawl using baby alpaca brushed from Plymouth, and she lives in it during the winter my mother says.
(Or at least at my mother's house, which is practically unheated. )
That's only heavy worsted, I knit it on 10s, but that is close?
I loved how it turned out but when I was home at thanksgiving I noticed it seemingly shrank/or wasn't as blocked as when I first finished it. I don't know whether that's the yarn, the weight, or because she washed it and didn't reblock it though.
It was this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/libr...fect-pie-shawl.
But I have no pictures of it because the the yarn is so black and so fuzzy none came out well at all.
