Product Details
This listing is for two ounces of prime Dark Fawn Suri Alpaca Fiber grown by a handsome, suri alpaca named "Cairo". His locks of fiber average approximately 5" in length. This fiber has been carefully skirted, washed, and is ready to use. Discount given for buying in bulk. Most pictures show 8 ounces of fiber, with the exception of the last two pictures which show two ounces. Two ounces of fiber will fill a sandwich size zip lock baggie.

Suri fiber can be carded for spinning into a very lovely, silky yarn, blended with other fibers, used for tail or core spinning, or spun right from the locks for a textured art yarn. It is wonderful as embellishment in felting projects, fiber painting, can be woven with, decorated with, even knit or crocheted.

The prime fiber, or blanket, comes from the area of an alpaca where a horse blanket would fit and is typically the finest, most uniform fleece from an adult alpaca.

Suris have a fine fiber, with different degrees of fineness based on the age of the alpaca, nutrition, and environment where the alpaca lives. Fineness is measured in microns and is graded according to this chart:

Grade 1 Ultra Fine (less than 20 microns)
Grade 2 Superfine (20-22.99 microns)
Grade 3 Fine (23-25.99 microns)
Grade 4 Medium (26-28.99 microns)
Grade 5 Intermediate (29-31.99 microns)
Grade 6 Robust (32 microns and above)

Though not a certified sorter, I handle lots of fiber and would consider this fiber to be Fine.
