Desert Sunset – Suri/Huacaya Alpaca

£13.50

50% Suri Alpaca/50% Huacaya Alpaca

Alpaca fibre is extremely light and warm, thanks to its hollow construction.  Suri alpaca fibre differs from Huacaya in that it has less crimp, and is very slick and smooth, where Huacaya is fluffy, and will have a slight halo when spun.  Both fibres have a relatively long staple length, although Suri fibre tends to be longer and curlier.  This blend has a beautiful drape and lustre, as well as a fluffy softness – it feels amazingly soft on the skin.

Colours & Inspiration

This is a wild, vibrant, warm red with undertones of orange and gold, reminiscent of the glow of the setting sun on sandstone rocks.

 

Each braid weighs 100g.
