"I have my eye on a beautiful Alpaca sweater but I have reservations about how long it will hold up. Any thoughts?"
Alpaca is a luxury fibre that's lighter, silkier, and warmer than wool. It's usually used in open weave garments that are a great choice for golf (like the impeccable fellow on the left) or any outdoor activity in weather that goes from warm to cool and back again. Take care to avoid snags and Alpaca sweaters will last as long as other knitwear. Among the best are the Lemmermayer links cardigans available at Florida's Maus & Hoffman.
