I was given 4 skiens of alpaca, 50gms each, what can I do with this besides a hat and scarf, and what kind of yarn can I put with this??

Oooh, lucky you! I love alpaca. What's the yardage on the skeins, and what's the weight of the yarn?

The only thing the tag says is 100% alpaca 50grams US needle 6 and 5 st=1 in it is grey, I thought maybe socks or buy something to go with it, would a cashmere be ok ?

On size 6 needles at that gauge, it's probably a DK and there may be around 100-130 yds per 50 gms.
