Product Details
This fiber is Suri Alpaca Fiber, carefully skirted, then prewashed, ready to be carded for spinning into a lovely, silky, 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 Shiya now six years old. It is white, the natural color, and approximately 5" in length.
Age, genetics, nutrition, and environment all play a part in the fineness of alpaca fiber. This fiber is considered Fine with next to the skin softness. 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 sold in two ounce quantities.
