There are two alpaca fleece types, huacaya and suri. Huacaya, a crimpy fleece, is the most common.. The suri has a long fleece with non crimped locks and is known for its lustre and drape and accounts for only 5% of the world’s alpaca population. It is more difficult to spin because of its very low scale height but that gives it its lustre. UK Alpaca’s suri yarns have been mixed with a small percentage of baby huacaya and silk to give the finished yarn more loft and cohesion.

All of the suri fleece comes from alpacas farmed in Britain and was hand graded at our farm in Devon.
