8 dollar alpaca?!
So I went to Hobby Lobby the other day and found some alpaca yarn for, holy crap, 8 dollars! Has anyone used it before? Is it really alpaca or just a blend and they didn't mention that on the label? I've always had to drop a ton of money for natural fiber yarn. If it's real I'll be so excited.

I've look on the Hobby Lobby website and I couldn't find 100% alpaca only alpaca blends.

If the yarn you looked at is Yarn Bee Effortless Super Bulky then it's only 20% alpaca.

I was just looking at Knitting Warehouse. They have a Bernat bulky 30% alpaca blend for $3.79 for 3.5 oz./100 gr.
