what to blend w/ alpaca
I have a fleece from our baby, and I'm trying to figure out what to blend with it so that I can spin it into yarn.

Staple length is 1-1.5" and its probably under 18 microns.

I cannot tolerate any sheep/goat fibers, so that's out. I itch for hours, even from cashmere or merino.

Was thinking silk, bamboo or camel down. I've heard that there shouldn't be too much of a difference in staple length.
