Seed stitch scarf with alpaca yarn

I finished this scarf on Mon, Sep 7, 2015. It measured 61 inches long and approx 6 inches wide. Then I added fringe that measured about 3 inches long. I still had a small amount of yarn left from the second skein.

The scarf looks nice. I like the look of the seed stitch. The scarf is soft and flexible. It might be a bit longish for me, but it should look nice on CP. At that length, it can be doubled over and then looped through itself.

Needle: US 3-5 (3.25-3.75 mm)

The alpaca farm exists in Ashland, Ohio. It's the store owner's farm.

I'm unsure where the hair is milled I to yarn. The store also sells roving.

Crocheting a scarf with two skeins of this yarn. The color is off-white or cream.

After the first skein, scarf is 39 inches long and 5.75 to 6.00 inches wide. I'm crocheting width-wise.

If scarf was only 4 inches wide, it might be how long? Math. At least 45 inches long. I wonder if seed stitch uses more yarn than a half-double crochet.

Anyway, one 200 yard skein could create a small scarf.
