Alpaca felts beautifully and sooo soft.

I used 50/50 Alpaca and Wool for this hat.  If feels almost fragile, slippery and hangs limp on my needles and in my hands while knitting.  Heat, water, agitation makes it a thick, sturdy yet extremely soft felt.  Somehow the felt is thick and firm yet exceptionally soft. A surprising new look and feel from items made entirely of wool.Alpaca/Wool Hat of Grey/Brown/Green
