Product Details

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 fiber is the prime, or blanket fiber, grown by a very sweet alpaca named "Ariella" now nine years old. It is beige with a very small amount of light fawn interspersed and is approximately 5" in length. Though the finest fiber comes from younger alpacas, her fiber is still quite soft and of medium fineness. Higher coarser grades of suri such as hers make wonderful novelty yarns and loopy boucle yarns with lots of volume and texture. It dyes like mohair into brilliant colors.
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
This fiber is packaged in two ounce quantities. Discounted pricing for larger purchases.
