SURI ELEGANCE [100% Suri Alpaca], Lace Weight

The Alpaca Yarn Co. SURI ELEGANCE


The Alpaca Yarn Co. SURI ELEGANCE, made in Peru


Suri Elegance is a laceweight, precious Suri Alpaca yarn millspun in Peru. Suri Alpaca fiber is naturally lustrous, grows in amazingly long locks, has superior softness, and is considered the most valuable Alpaca fiber in the world. Suri Elegance is recommended for shawls and other hand- or machine-knitted designs worked in lace or open-work stitch patterns.

Suri fiber has a natural lock structure that makes it grow in long, lustrous clusters. Unlike Huacaya fiber, Suri has no crimp, but it has an extraordinary silky sheen similar to mohair. Suri is ideally suited for worsted spun yarn used for making suits. Those beautiful Armani suits are made of Suri Alpaca. Reference: Wild Fibers Magazine, Fall 2010.
