Lustrous, smooth and soft, baby suri alpaca is wrapped around a silk core then brushed to produce a supersoft yarn with a light and airy halo. This yarn is wonderfully versatile and can be used in a wide range of projects. It knits up beautifully on its own on a wide range of needle sizes and can be used as a light DK through to chunky. Combine it with a fingering/sock weight or DK weight yarn to add warmth and texture without weight to jumpers, scarves and cowls.
All yarns have excess fibres (from production) that might come off as lint or shedding, in various amounts, depending on the fibres used and how the yarn is spun. Brushed yarns have more of these loose fibres than other yarns, and tend to shed more, so some shedding is to be expected with this yarn. When dyeing this non superwash yarn, we recommend gradual heating and cooling plus gentle handling to minimise tangling of the long fibres.
