SURI ALPACA/SILK

Our super soft and fluffy “Suri Alpaca/Silk” consists of 90% baby suri alpaca and 10% silk and has a yardage of 225 metres/100g.
There are two types of alpaca; suri and huacaya. The Suri alpaca is more rare and makes up approx. 5% of the alpaca population. The hair from the suri alpaca is longer and shinier.
Alpaca wool is described as: soft like cashmere, warmer than sheep’s wool and with the shine of silk.
Baby suri alpaca refers to wool from the very first shearing of the alpaca, which is the absolute finest and softest.
The combination with silk makes this yarn incomparably soft, shiny and luxurious – a pleasure to knit with.
“Suri Alpaca/Silk” is excellent for soft garments and accessories, and can be used as an alternative to “Fat Mohair”.
We recommend knitting needles 5 – 7 mm.
