So I’ve started knitting a scarf for my brother for Christmas. He lives in the UK and so it’s an appropriate gift for this time of year. I’m using the So-Called Scarf pattern that I used once before and have chosen a yarn called Inca from Patons. The yarn is 50% wool, 30% acrylic and 20% alpaca. I’m liking the way the pattern is showing up the variegations in the yarn but I have a problem - the yarn sheds fibres. I guess the Alpaca content is the culprit. Now I don’t know about you but I really hate fluff on my clothes. I avoid buying anything with angora in it for that reason. And I have a lint roller at work and at home to de –cat-hair myself. Therefore I have a problem with knitting a scarf that sheds fibres. I’m considering ripping it out (I’ve only knitted about 10cm) and knitting a hat instead or starting the scarf again with a different yarn. Any advice? Should I just get over it and knit it anyway?
