Ivory or cream suri alpaca locks averaging 7-9 inches in length, a few less but not less than 6 inches. They are not a true white, a creamy appearance. This listing is for one ounce which is shown in the picture with ruler and business card for scsle.
Suri alpaca comprises about 10% of the US alpaca population. Some fleeces have a little wave but never any crimp. They are drapey fibers that work beautifully in doll wigs, felting applications, and yarns with drape. This fiber is fine and soft. I have teased some locks apart to remove fine hay fleck, but some remains. The locks were washed once to remove the worst dust. Alpacas and llamas love dust baths.
Thank you, it's very good!

Lovely! This is my first time using alpaca fiber and I'm making doll wigs with it. The cleaning process has gone quite smoothly, it's not very dirty and I've had little waste. Customer service was very nice and arrived quickly, definitely would recommend!
