These Suri Alpaca Locks are the prime fiber grown by an alpaca named "Margo". The fiber has been separated from the fleece into individual locks that are aligned in the same direction. It is medium brown, according to The Alpaca Registry Color Chart, and has a very pretty sheen to it. Locks are available in two ounce packages of locks that average 6" in length. This fiber is super soft and silky!
This fiber is unwashed, uncombed, and rubber banded in 1/2 ounce bundles. It has been picked through to remove tiny bits of hay and debris picked up in the pasture, but may still contain very small amounts of vegetable matter that will easily fall out as you work with it.
Suri is the rarer of the two alpaca breeds. 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. These locks can also be left just as is and sewn into a weft to attach directly onto a doll cap.
