Scarf Swap
Hi everyone I am in a scarf swap and my pal either likes alpaca or pure wool and has very sensitive skin so I want to buy something nice and soft. Any recommendations? Oh and she likes deep red shades the best

We could learn a lot from crayons:some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names,
and all are different colors....
but they all exist very nicely in the same box.

You should try knitpicks.com, their alpaca yarn is really nice and soft.

Blue Sky Alpaca has nice, although pricey, yarns. Berroco has some new light weight, ultra soft merinos.

If your friend has a serious skin allergy, you might consider llama instead of wool. Not as soft as alpaca, but almost certainly NOT allergenic --different fiber composition and no lanolin.

Let me know what you choose.

I would figure that it would almost be something like a blood red (sorry if that term grosses you out). According to my recommendations and the other poster i went to yarndex and came up with this conclusion...hope it's helpful.

I should go knit instead of talking about it..... :teehee:
