From Knitting with Balls:

Picture it: an October morning, you’re up early and ready to go for a run - or maybe just walk the dog. It’s too chilly outside for a sweatshirt and too warm for a coat. What do you wear? Made from 100% alpaca, a fiber warmer than wool and at least as waterproof, the Hooded Alpaca Parka is exactly what you need. With sleeve cuffs that fold over to make fingerless mitts, a dual-direction zipper, and option sew-on fluorescent fabric, this garment’s got it all. Take that, Mother Nature!
