The green scarf in the pic above it made from two stands of baby alpaca.

I made it while I was in Costa RIca but hadnt gotten around to weaving in the ends until recently.

Beautiful! I love all the scarves---I'm such a sucker for lacy scarves. And the fact that you made the yarn yourself is pretty impressive.
