Suri Alpaca Fiber, 4.5 Inches, True Black, 2 Ounces, "Penny"
This fiber is Suri Alpaca Fiber, carefully skirted, then prewashed, ready to be carded for spinning into a lightweight yarn, blended with other fibers, or spun right from the locks for a textured art yarn. Suri spins into a good, strong, drapey yarn.
This true black fiber is a natural color and is the prime fiber grown by an alpaca named "Penny". It averages approximately 4.5" in length, with some fiber shorter and some longer.
Suri alpaca is nice blended with silk, seacell, tencel, cormo, merino, kid mohair and rambouillet, and usually 10% is enough. Suri fiber adds interest to needle and wet felting projects, can be woven with, decorated with, even knit or crocheted. Longer length suri fiber is wonderful as doll hair, simply look for the tips of each lock and pull away from the rest of the fiber.
Fiber has been prewashed meaning it has been soaked in soapy water and rinsed multiple times, getting the majority of the dust out. Final project should be washed again.
Each package contains two ounces. If spun into a lace weight yarn, you can figure on about 250 yards per ounce.
