Suri Alpaca 4ply Marl
These suri alpaca yarns are a 4-ply 2/9Nm, 50g skein, 225m approx and we suggest using 3.25mm needles 28stsx33rows or 3.5mm needles 24stsx33rows
Composition is 100% superfine suri and spun fully worsted at a small mill in Dorset.
This yarn is extremely soft and light.
There are two alpaca fleece types, huacaya and suri. Huacaya, a crimpy fleece, is the most common.. The suri has a long fleece with non crimped locks and is known for its lustre and drape and accounts for only 5% of the world’s alpaca population. It is more difficult to spin because of its very low scale height but that gives it its lustre.
All of the suri fleece comes from alpacas farmed in Britain and was hand graded in Devon.
