These Suri Alpaca Locks are the prime fiber grown by a suri alpaca named "Petunia" and average 8" in length. They are uncombed, but have been pre-washed getting much of the dirt out. This fiber is considered White according to the National Alpaca Registry color chart, and is a natural color. 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 and craft projects. They also are sometimes used in knitting, crochet, and weaving projects.
Locks are available in one and two ounce quantities. Locks are small in diameter and fiber is very fine. There are some small pieces of vegetable matter (hay and straw) in it, which can easily be picked out as you work with the fiber.
Doll makers love using suri locks for doll hair. Be aware that there is some waste when combing out locks for a reroot. A typical Blythe reroot takes about two ounces. Locks can also be left as is and sewn into a weft to attach directly onto a doll cap.
