Bernat Alpaca Natural Blends would be an excellent alternative. I just ordered some about a month ago and I believe I paid about $4.30 a ball. I had made a hat for my daughter for Christmas in a soft pink and she loved it so much that she asked me to make a scarf to match so had to order more wool. Very soft and nice colours too.
Hope this helps.

If you don't particularly care if there's alpaca in it, Paton's Shetland Chunky is a 25%wool/75%acrylic blend that knits up nicely. 148yds/skein. Gauge is 15st's/20r's on US 10's, same as the Bernat Alpaca blend. Reasonably priced. I got some at ACMoore, but it's probably all over.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a yarn similar to Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande (100g/110yd)? Wonderful fiber, but a little too expensive - pattern calls for 5-6 balls.
There was some of this yarn available at DBNY.com but not sure if they still have it
