Suri is the softest of alpaca fibres. It drapes beautifully and has a silky lustre.
Handwoven with pure un dyed alpaca. Each blanket is carefully hemmed by hand. It is soft & warm, perfect for a new baby or to lay along the end of a bed. Our alpaca products are truely sustainable with all fibre coming from our own herdSloan Cot Blanket. We clean the fleece of vegetable matter and select the best of the locks. Due to the fragile nature of the suri fibre we then send it to a local small scale mill, just a couple hundred kilometres away. Once they have cleaned, carded and spun it into the fine yarn, it is returned to us. We then weave this luxurious yarn as is, in its natural colour, or we gently dye it ourselves, using either natural dyes or the local eucalyptus flora
Alpaca fibre is resilient and will keep its shape and softness for years.
