Hi!, I am a new member on the forum, but have been using my knitting help app for 2 yrs. now (LOVE IT!).

I wanted to say Hi! and ask you knitters out there if you can share any yarn supply place where I can get extra bulky alpaca yarn for an "affordable" price. I just can't bear to spend $100+ on 45yds from my local yarn shop, and thought maybe I'd get a good suggestion here

Thanks & have a fab knitting day!

Two of the ones linked to below are chunky alpaca blends and one is 100% alpaca. All are in the range of 3-3,5sts/inch. What gauge were you looking for?

maybe those would help you as well?
