Natural Suri Alpaca Fiber, carefully skirted, washed, and dyed ready to be carded for spinning into yarn, blended with other fibers, or spun right from the locks for a textured art yarn. Suri Fiber is wonderful as embellishment in needle and wet felting projects, can be woven with, decorated with, even knit or crocheted. Longer length fiber also makes beautiful doll hair.
This is the prime fiber grown by a suri alpaca female named "Ariella", 12 years old at time of shearing, and is of medium fineness. Higher grades of suri such as hers make wonderful novelty yarns and loopy boucle yarns with lots of volume and texture. This fiber has been dyed with a Gaywool dye color called Cornflower. The locks average approximately 4" when pulled straight, from cut end to tip.
Each package contains 2 ounces of fiber. Two ounces of fiber will fill a sandwich size baggie, as pictured.
