I have finished my first item, a triangle scarf, made with 100% alpaca. The scarf is soft and feels luxurious, but I was surprised to find that alpaca sheds, i.e., it was shedding while I was making the scarf. After one wash of the scarf, which is something I normally do after making any natural fiber item, I found that the scarf has mostly stopped shedding, which is good. For this triangle scarf, I used yellow, blue, and pink colors from the 5 hanks I dyed. I was going to use all five colors, but I wasn't sure I could pull it off.
