This fleece is very long and fine with a great drape. It has some tenderness on tips, but combs out well to around 38 cm so suited for those projects where length is required. The raw fleece has some vegetable matter and a little cotting, but processed well with little wastage. It has excellent shine and softness and is ideal fibre for doll’s hair where a more delicate result is desired. 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.
