Alpaca Explorer Gloves

I tried something I hadn't done before with these gloves. Using two different alpaca blend yarns we got from my Mother-in-law, I crocheted them together into my fingerless glove pattern. They turned out looking really nice, but what ever possessed me to make gloves with alpaca wool blend is beyond me. They are very itchy!! Anyway, it was a fun exercise in blending different yarns and using up some of our growing stash.
