I have 2 alpacas and I want to spin their fiber. I have heard it stretches and should therefore be blended with another fiber. What would be a good fiber to compliment my alpaca?

I don't have alpacas or wool sheep, but we went to a fiber show and there were many people with alpacas. They used straight alpaca wool for the softest, lightest garments I ever saw. Beautiful stuff. Maybe make a small article to start with to get used to your alpaca wool?

@luvmypets has alpacas and sheep & is a spinner... Maybe she might know? I don't follow the wool/spinners so don't really know who to tag, sorry... :(
