What is the Suri alpaca?
The alpacas of the suri breed, as the term alpaca is usually used without differentiating whether it is a wakaya or suri alpaca.
Unlike the Wakaya breed of alpaca, which is bred above 4,200 metres above sea level, the Suri breed is an alpaca that is bred below this altitude.
This breed is categorised as “super fine” quality alpaca, and provides, after the vicuña, one of the finest and most luxurious natural fibres in the world.
Its fleece, which comes from a single coat, is straight, soft to the touch, silky, lustrous and shiny, resembling the softness of cashmere and the lustre and sheen of silk.
Fibre experts agree that the fleece of the Suri alpaca is more uniform than that of the Wacaya breed.
Suri alpaca fibre has no fat or lanolin like sheep.
READ ME. Important information:
You must keep in mind that artisanal dyeing is not like industrial dyeing. Batches are small, and the intensity and distribution of colours may vary from one skein to another. If you need the skeins to be from the same dye lot and as similar as possible, please write this in the order notes to take this into account.
It is also important to know that the colours may look different on each screen and that the mix and distribution of colours you receive may differ from the photo because no two skeins are exactly the same.
In any case, no worries! because if when you receive the skeins they are not what you expected, we will start the return process without a problem and at no cost to you.
Hand wash in water at a temperature below 30º with a neutral soap. Dry the garment horizontally to avoid deformation.
