Item details

Super slinky yarn from gorgeous blend of suri llama, bamboo, and wool, 40/30/20 spun at sport weight, 3 ply, 200 yards per skein. The suri llama was a beautiful caramel fawn and other fibers were dyed a range of warm tones prior to blending to achieve great depth of color.

Suri llama is usually a very soft fiber that is silky and drapey without any crimp in it. The fibers are hollow, and the hand of the fiber is one of coolness and lightness but with great insulating properties. This with bamboo provides a very silky handle that would be excellent for scarves and shawls, especially beautiful in a lace pattern. The yarn does have memory and some elasticity from the wool.

As usual, the animal fibers in this yarn were bought from a small US farm. This fiber is from nearby LaPorte, IA. The work that goes into raising animals for fiber is endless, because they require optimal nutrition and healthy conditions to create the best fiber. Buying fiber from these farms supports our great agricultural tradition, makes a contribution to the economy of US communities, and encourages sustainability. Our fibers are processed with a minimum of environmental impact. This particular blend may never be seen in a big commercial brand yarn, because suri llamas are extremely uncommon and comprise only a small amount of the llama population. They somewhat resemble suri alpacas with long, silky dreadlocks.

Care instructions wash cool no agitation, mild soap, lay flat to dry. This listing is for one skein, multiple available.
