Fibery goodness! Just enough to tell how you like the yarn and decide if you want to spend the bucks on the whole skein.

I wonder does anyone knit with alpaca yarn that is made from alpaca fur?

I see so many blogs about knitting and am surprised that not many of them have even discovered alpaca yarn as the greatest yarn available.
