Is anyone allergic to alpaca ? I am starting to wonder if I am. I have noticed that whenever I work with it I get headaches and my eyes bother me. This is really strange, as I have no other allergies that I know of. Originally I thought I may just have been using dusty yarn, but it is happening consistently every time I use alpaca. I just started an alpaca sweater too! Time to rethink this pattern.
For me it seems like it sheds so much that I am breathing it in & it is getting in my eyes. The headaches are horrible. And it's too bad bc I love alpaca and actually was hoping to learn more about Alpacas & spinning their fibers.
