Suri Alpaca Handspun yarn
What can I tell you about my experience with this fiber. Suri Alpaca is almost like angora bunnies, but a bit different. Suri alpaca is very soft to spin and has a very long staple. It is easy to draft and it can take a lot of twist. This fiber must have been dosed with a bit of logwood as I noticed that my hands had a bit of purplish hue, not a big deal, just not expected. I was able to make two ply yarn of about 260 yards. There is about 4oz of yarn here, but I won't really know until I weight the dry product. I have not determined the WPI either, but not to worry, it will be in my next post. Hope you are having a great spring and for those of you who live in the Southern Hemisphere, hope you are having a great Autumn. Thanks for stopping by!
