Buyer's Remorse!
I bought some Cascade Pastaza 50% Llama, 50% wool. The color is a sort of mustard gold with tiny hints of orange and green. I love the color. Unfortunately, it loves me too.

Because I own 3 pets, all of whom have predominantly black fur (with a little dark brown thrown in for good measure), I tend to wear dark colored clothing. I am now covered in gold Llama.

On a positive note, this is the first time I've done a rib stitch without increasing (something I was notorious for doing recently).

You can always donate the sheddy yarn to your local Senior Center if you're looking to get rid of it.

Something I've heard somewhere... try spraying your finished product with hair spray to reduce shedding?

I did a poncho in this yarn last year. Have to admit it's a bit itchy. Otherwise a nice yarn to work with.
