Looking for alpaca

Hi girls.

I found this fabulous pattern in a magazine tonight that calls for over 1700 yards of 100% alpaca, lightweight , 50g (1 3/4 oz) in black. Does anyone know where I would be able to find this at a deal. I’m hoping not to spend more than $80 on the yarn (because I also need a couple balls of white too!!)

Thanks!! :XX:

Try www.elann.com . They have some reasonable alpaca.

Ingrid… or anyone…

if the pattern calls for light weight or 50g, what’s another name for the weight. I"m on the link ingrid provided and doing a search, but light weight is not on there. is it the same as dk?


What’s the gauge and needle size of the pattern? If it’s about 22-24 st per four inches, then it’s dk.
