Suri Alpaca Fiber, 6 Inches, Madder Orange, 2 Ounces
Natural Suri Alpaca Fiber, carefully skirted, then washed, ready to be carded for spinning into luxurious yarn, blended with other fibers, or spun right from the locks for a textured art yarn. Suri Fiber is wonderful as embellishment in needle and wet felting projects, can be woven with, decorated with, even knit or crocheted. It also makes beautiful doll hair.
This is the prime fiber grown by a suri alpaca male named "Kate", 10 years old at the time of shearing, and still quite soft. Her light fawn and white fiber (also pictured) has been over-dyed with Madder Orange, a Gaywool Dye color. The locks average approximately 6", meaning there may be some fiber shorter than this and some longer.
