Chunky Alpaca substitution

Hi, I'm Julie and a relatively new crocheter. I'm ready to try my hand at more complex projects and have found a shrug from Sensual Crochet by Amy Swenson (a book crammed with animal yarns with one or two exceptions) I'd like to make.

It calls for a chunky-weight alpaca yarn, but I'm not sure what to use as a substitute. Would a super bulky weight acrylic such as Red Heart Grandé do the trick? Any insights?
