Suri Alpaca Fiber, 4 Inches, True Black, 2 Ounces, Mayflower
This listing is for Black Suri Alpaca Fiber. This fiber has been carefully skirted leaving the prime fiber only, tumbled to remove dust and tiny bits of hay and such, rinsed clean, air dried, and is ready to be used.
This fiber can be carded for spinning into a very lovely, silky yarn, blended with other fiber and spun, or it can be spun right from the locks for a textured art yarn. It adds interesting design and texture to felting and craft projects, can be used in weaving, decorated with, even knit or crocheted. Suri fiber also makes wonderful doll hair, very soft and silky.
This fiber is the prime fiber grown by one of our suri female alpacas named Mayflower now 12 years old. Though not as soft as in her younger days, her fiber is still quite silky. Her lock style is straight, and the fiber averages approximately 4" (10.1cm) in length.
Each package contains two ounces. If spun into a lace weight yarn, you can figure on about 250 yards per ounce.
