This yarn talks a lot

I saw this yarn at the Shepherd's Harvest festival, and there were only 2 hanks left. It spoke to me. It said buy me. 85% alpaca 15% merino. 10$ a hank. 300 yards. Minnesota grown and spun. It came home. I put it in it's own ziploc so it could whisper all it wanted about what it wanted to be. Every so often I would look at it and it was still just whispering, not sure yet. Today it yelled at me. It yelled "lace scarf!" ok. so I have 600 yards of the stuff, but for now only the one hank was speaking and it was saying LACE FREAKING SCARF! I listened. It is a cake that I wound on my handy swift. Hard to see the true colors, but it is a very lightly variegated white and lilac color. True pretty lilac. Love this yarn. Off to find pattern. I hope the other hank talks too.
