Comments: I want to make a cowl that is big enough to pull down over my shoulders like a little cape, without it being so big that I need to wrap it around me.  I think this one should do the trick, and I've decided to make it out of this yarn that I had in my stash.  I got the yarn in a swap, but it came without any labels so I dont' really know what it is.  It appears to have some long-ish guard hairs, which suggests that it might have some alpaca in it.  Anyone know how to identify a mystery fibre?
