Nashua's "Julia"

I am knitting a scarf out of “julia” by Nashua. Off the top of my head, it’s a wool/alpaca/something else blend. It’s WAY too far along to start over and it’s an absolutely lovely yarn. Has anyone ever used this yarn and what is your thoughts on the “scratch” factor? It feels fine to my fingers but I threw it around my neck the other day and thought it was a little scratchy…will this change if handwash/block it when finished? It’s a gift…

mohair…the other is mohair.
