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.

hobby lobby is opening here in yakima in less than 3 weeks. i'm afraid. i'm so afraid. i have a sport wagon, with so much cargo room...
my knitting mojo is gone. it was already waning, due to time constraints, but with this current record heat wave in my area, it's near-impossible to knit while simultaneously two-fisting iced drinks. maybe it will return by summer's end?
