The original Shape Shifter was knit in pure bulky weight alpaca. This is really too soft for it’s weight. I recommend an alpaca/wool blend -- the wool will give some helpful elasticity to the fiber.

I use the Shape Shifter as a coat, a jacket, a bathrobe, a blanket. It is an indispensable traveling companion…warm, flexible, adaptable -- if only all our traveling companions were this way.
