Product Details

These Suri Alpaca Locks are the prime fiber grown by a suri alpaca named "Anastasia". They average 11" in length, some longer, some shorter. This fiber is medium fawn, a natural color. Suri Locks make gorgeous doll hair. They can also be used in tail or core spinning for some very unique art yarn, 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, crochet, and weaving projects.


Locks are the natural divisions in an alpaca's fleece. Fiber in lock form has had the locks separated from the fleece. A single lock of suri is made up of multiple individual fibers.

These locks are unwashed and have not been combed. Any bits of hay or straw in the fiber will come out the more they are worked with, washed, and combed.

These locks are sold in two ounce quantities, and rubber banded together in 1/2 ounce bundles.

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. These locks can also be left just as is and sewn into a weft to attach directly onto a doll cap. They may also be glued.

Raw fiber that has not been separated into locks is also available here.
