It is very soft and has less drape than some of the other fleeces, with a more airy and voluminous effect when combed. Also not as shiny as some of the others. Ideal fibre for doll’s hair. Also suit spinning from the lock, dyeing, weaving and felting. 100g packs of raw, unprocessed fibre.
About alpacarama products
The focus of alpacarama is to produce and promote handmade product from the fleece grown by our suri alpacas on our farm in the Strathbogie Tablelands in North Central Victoria, Australia. Wherever possible, the products on this site are from our farm, our neighbouring farmers and local processors. With over 1000 alpacas just on our farm, that is a lot of fibre! So, via this on-line store, we can provide all those talented spinners, felters and textile artists with a range of alpaca fibre products to add their next project. We will continue to add product to the site, but please contact us if you need something in particular, or would like to reserve special fleeces that sell out quickly. We can also custom dye, spin and knit as required.
