I don't think it would work. Alpaca doesn't have enough body to it for the finished item to hold its shape. You'd be washing your soaker pretty often to re-shape it.

You'd be better off making it a scarf or something.

You could dye it with Kool-Aid, though.

I don't know about Alpaca, but mohair does work, as does angora (that would be goat and rabbit) I have some beautiful wool/mohair blend, yes you can koolaid dye any kind of natural fiber (including the stuff that grows out of your own head
) Anyway the mohair and angora don't have a problem holding shape, maybe if you made a soaker with wool/Alpaca blend? good luck! ~
