Suri Alpaca Locks, 7 Inches, Aster, Precious

SKU 18442

Product Details

These Suri Alpaca Locks are the prime fiber grown by a young suri alpaca named "Pearl". The fiber has been hand-dyed with a Gaywool dye color called Aster. The locks of fiber average approximately 7" / 17.78cm in length.

This listing is for two ounces (56.69 grams) of fiber.

Suri Locks make gorgeous doll hair. They can also be used in tail or core spinning, carded and spun into beautiful silky yarn, or used in a variety of different felting projects. They also are quite fun to use in knitting and crochet projects.

The locks have been separated from the fleece, so are very easy to work with. They have been rinsed multiple times, though a final washing when your project is completed is recommended.

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 I'm not a Certified Sorter, I handle lots of fiber, and would consider this fiber to be Superfine. It is the first shearing from this alpaca.

Doll makers love using suri locks for doll hair. These locks can be left just as is and sewn into a weft to attach directly onto a doll cap.

Be aware that there is some waste when combing out locks for a reroot. A typical Blythe reroot takes about 1-2 ounces.
